ORLANDO, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mitigation Marketing, the first and largest firm specializing in marketing support for mitigation banks in Florida, announced that it is now representing Farmton Mitigation Bank. Through the partnership, Mitigation Marketing will leverage its proven, full-service approach to assist Farmton with its marketing and services needs.
“We are proud to be working with Farmton, the largest wetland mitigation provider in the United States serving east central Florida,” said Dennis Benbow, owner and founder of Mitigation Marketing. “We are confident that together we will offer streamlined mitigation and conservation solutions to both public and private developers.”
For eleven years, Farmton’s 24,000-acre mitigation bank has remained the largest mitigation bank in the nation.

Farmton Mitigation Bank lies in both Volusia and Brevard Counties. It services Basins 17 and 18, as well as 14, 16, 19, 20 and 23, which fall under the jurisdiction of both the St. Johns River Water Management District and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Habitats include cypress swamp, freshwater marsh, scrub/shrub wetlands, mixed forested wetlands, cypress/pine swamp, wetland coniferous forest, wetland hardwood forest, and uplands primarily comprised of pine flatwoods and slash pine plantation, and to a lesser degree, temperate upland hardwood hammock.
