Tomorrow the House Agriculture Committee will vote on a Farm Bill that will give producers across our country the certainty they need to continue producing the safest, most abundant and reliable source of food on the planet. As the committee works to produce a responsible Farm Bill that works for all regions of the country, I want to recognize farm families in my state.
In my home state of Arkansas, farming is a family business. Young people begin helping with chores on the farm almost as soon as they can walk. In many cases, generations of family members work side by side cultivating the land. Families take great pride in working together and continuing a tradition of hard work.
Agriculture is the backbone of Arkansas's rural economy and each year, the Farm Bureau recognizes families across Arkansas for their contributions to our state. I congratulate all the county Farm Family winners across Arkansas on this achievement. All Arkansans take great pride in our state's farm families that were recognized this year.
Congratulations once again to all the county Farm Families recognized by Farm Bureau. I applaud them for their commitment to agriculture and hope for their ongoing success.
