Touring the multi-generational Raines Farm in Adams County
Recent Update: Joined a letter expressing my support for eliminating trade barriers for American agriculture products in an upcoming trade deal with nearly a dozen nations.
Farmers are America’s original small business owner, and their legacy of hard work was and is fundamental to the strength of our nation. This summer, the House passed the first “farm only” farm bill in decades. This victory separated agriculture issues from food assistance and food stamps, allowing each issue to be considered and voted on separately.
No one knows agriculture issues better than the farmers who are working their fields every day, and I always enjoy visiting and learning from southern Ohio’s farmers. This summer, I spent a day with the Raines family on their Adams county farm, learning about their successful multi-generational operation. I also sat down with the Highland County Chamber of Commerce for an agriculture round table with local farmers, listening to the challenges they face every day.
