America’s farming economy has been a source of strength and pride for our nation throughout our history. Here in Florida, agriculture ranks second only to tourism in terms of revenue. That’s why it’s so important that we continue to work to promote agricultural production and trade, promote conservation, and ensure food safety. I’ve also supported legislation to help protect our small family run farms as well as our larger operations. The Farm Bill gives farmers a safety net while ensuring that our agricultural industry remains strong. I will continue to revisit this legislation to protect Florida’s farms.
