U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue (click here) joined President Trump for a “Farmers Roundtable” at the White House to address issues facing the American agriculture community, as the president signed an Executive Order establishing an Interagency Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity.

The Farmers Roundtable featured more than a dozen farmers and representatives of the agriculture community who discussed with Trump and Perdue a variety of topics, including agricultural trade, regulatory reform, rural investment and infrastructure, labor issues, and the Farm Bill.

Former Chairman of the United Fresh Produce Association Board and 2013 American Vegetable Grower® magazine’s Grower Achievement Award WinnerSM Maureen Torrey with Torrey Farms of Elba, NY, participated in a roundtable discussion at the White House with President Trump and Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue regarding the policy needs of rural America and the agriculture industry....

Part of the problem with Trump Tax Reform, regardless its vagueness, is its focus on Wall Street. In the case of agriculture that is not the best idea. The American Family Farm has been the backbone of USA production for a long time and now that Americans are demanding healthier foods it is making a modest comeback. Of all people to bring back the American Family Farm are military veterans.
