Rep. Ron Kind with farmers in Wood County

Tomorrow, the country will come together to celebrate America’s farmers, ranchers, producers and their families on National Agriculture Day. U.S. Rep. Ron Kind released the following statement:

“Wisconsin’s farmers have always been at the heart of our state’s culture and our local economies. I am proud to represent a Congressional District that farms everything from fruits and vegetables, to world-class dairy products. Our farmers feed our communities and feed the world – and for that we owe a debt of gratitude.

Life on the farm is never easy – especially as family farms face unprecedented challenges. On National Agriculture Day, I invite you to celebrate and thank our hardworking family farmers, and recommit to buying and eating local.”
