Central Baldwin Chamber of Commerce – Baldwin County Alabama

Baldwin County, AL is considered by many of its residents as “God’s Country.” A lush green paradise surrounded on all sides by one form of water or another, it has become known as fisherman’s haven and a golfer’s dream. The land contains a bounty of wildlife, natural and protected, that is harvested by the locals through hunting and fishing. Water sports abound, in fresh and salt-water, with boating, jet skiing, surfing, water skiing, and swimming among just a few of the activities available for the avid water enthusiast.
Many areas are protected by the state and federal government to maintain the pristine conditions of its natural systems.
Agriculture has always played an important part in the economics of Baldwin County. Cotton is still one of the persistent cash crops in the area, but just about anything can be grown. Potatoes, corn, peas, butterbeans, soy beans, tomatoes, squash, okra, peanuts, eggplant, turnip and collard greens, and many other vegetables are grown and sold locally in our farm markets and grocery stores. Cattle, hogs, and poultry head the production of meat products in Baldwin County.
Not only is the production of food items an important agricultural aspect, but forestry conservation, sod farming, tree farming and horticulture are others.
The county is in the top three growing counties in the state and its lure is diversity. In 2000, the county’s population was reported to be 140,415. It was estimated in 2003 that the population had increased by 13,500 and by 2008 the population is projected to be almost 180,000 residents. The primary locations that had experienced the growth prior to 2000 was the Eastern Shore areas of Daphne, Spanish Fort, and Fairhope, as well as the South Baldwin areas of Gulf Shores, Orange Beach and Foley.
