The Okeechobee News covers Okeechobee County, Florida. Okeechobee County sits like a top hat perched at the northern tip of the second-largest freshwater lake totally within the confines of the United States.

Beef-cattle ranching is the county’s oldest industry and Okeechobee County leads the state in beef production. Another fast-growing segment of the county’s agricultural community is citrus production. Tourism is the second largest industry in the county, and each winter thousands of people head to Okeechobee County to enjoy fishing the waters of Lake Okeechobee.
