Agriculture & Agribusiness

It must be emphasized that, while it is not a specific competitive or developmental target sector, agribusiness is a foundation of the community and woven throughout many of the sector. It is a unifying theme between the community's Manufacturing, Transportation and Distribution, and Travel and Tourism targets. It represents the community's past, present, and future identity, yet many residents have expressed a desire to see the community's economy continue to diversify in ways that are not necessarily tied to the community's agricultural, agribusiness, and agritourism roots.

The chart below outlines the presence of agrculture and agribusiness in many of the sectors in Grand Island. 

“Grand Island provided us the ability to build and maintain professional careers, while still being present in our children's lives. That's the 'better opportunity' we found here.”
