Jefferson County Economic Development Council

Where Florida's Legacy Meets The Future


Easy access to I-10 and US 19 make Jefferson County an ideal choice for interstate commerce. Nearby airports and seaports expand your reach to the world.

Three interstate interchanges and large parcels of undeveloped and affordable land provide lots of “elbow room” for your industry to grow.

The rich agricultural legacy of farms, dairies, orchards and timber give Jefferson County a reputation for success.

Monticello, Jefferson’s county seat, offers the perfect blend of hospitality, cultural diversity, artistic vitality and historical interest.
