Alabama Land

The Yellowhammer state encompasses 32.6 million acres, equalling over 50,938 square miles. Located in the southern region of the United States, part of its borders are formed by the Gulf of Mexico. The western border is the state of Mississippi. Neighboring states include Mississippi, Georgia, Tennessee, and Florida.

Alabama’s name derives from a Native American word meaning “vegetation gatherers,” referencing the Indians clearing the land and making it fit for farming. Alabama became the 22nd state of the Union in 1819.

It’s nicknamed the Yellowhammer State in honor of a company of young cavalrymen from Huntsville who wore uniforms adorned with fine yellow cloth. The name spread until all Confederate troops from Alabama were referred to as “yellowhammers.”

The state flower is the camellia, a flowering shrub, and the state bird is the Yellowhammer.

The state is made up of 67 counties. Montgomery is the capital, and the Huntsville metro is now the largest city. Birmingham, in the north-central region, is the second largest.

Agriculture in Alabama

Agriculture continues to be Alabama’s top industry for revenue generated in the Yellowhammer State. Agriculture in the state is a $4.7 billion-dollar industry. There are approximately 44,000 farms in the state, covering 8.9 million acres of Alabama. The average size farm comprises 206 acres. Agriculture makes a significant contribution to all 67 counties.

Alabama’s most valuable crops are cotton and soybeans. The state also grows substantial quantities of cattle, poultry, and nurseries. Most of the cropland is found in the northern Alabama area of the state.

Historically known for its cotton harvest, the products that now account for the state’s leading agricultural output are broiler chickens, soybeans, and corn. Alabama is a top 5 producer of broiler chickens alongside Georgia, Arkansas, and North Carolina. Poultry is Alabama’s largest agricultural commodity, leading as the most valuable livestock product, including eggs-layers, with sales valued at $3.1 billion.

Catfish is an essential commodity for the state, and Alabama leads the country in catfish production. Alabama’s aquaculture ranks first in the U.S. with $230.7 million in sales. Known for farm-raised catfish, Alabama boasts 205 catfish farms with sales valued at $219.7 million (USDA, June 2021). Many of these farms are located in the Black Belt Region.

Timberland

Alabama boasts some of the countries’ most productive timberland, and the state has over 23 million acres of timberland within its borders. This figure ranks third in total timberland acreage amongst states. Alabama’s timber industry generates over $27.7 billion in economic output and creates over 120K jobs.

A vibrant hunting and fishing culture exists in Alabama, and whitetail deer, turkey, dove, ducks, and hogs are the main quarry pursued. The Black Belt region, in particular, is a destination area for hunters due to the strong whitetail deer genetics found.

For anglers, freshwater and saltwater create a diverse ecosystem for many fish species, including largemouth bass, crappie, catfish, perch, and bluegill. The primary saltwater species include redfish, speckled trout, blacktip shark, and cobia. With over 100 public lakes, 123,000 stream miles, 255,000 freshwater acres, and Gulf Coast access, this makes for diverse fishing opportunities across the state.
