MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - America's premier farm show kicks off Tuesday morning in Moultrie. Area businesses are benefiting from the influx of visitors to the Sunbelt Ag Expo.

"It's a great week for us and we enjoy having extra people in town," said Cedar River Seafood Owner, Harry Bell. "I know there are a lot of vendors out there. They come out to eat and help support the community."
