U.S. Chris Murphy last week launched his 2018 “Our Farm Bill” Listening Campaign and Online Portal as a way to directly communicate with Connecticut’s agricultural community. This two way conversation will enable Murphy to hear firsthand of the agricultural communities ideas and goals for the upcoming 2018 reauthorization of the Farm Bill.
“From the time of the American Revolution, when Connecticut was known as the “Provision State,” farming has been in our DNA,” explained Murphy. “Today, farming in Connecticut is on the rise. In the face of many challenges, Ct farmers are doing amazing work to thrive during times of economic stress and low commodity prices. And too often, Washington isn’t helping.”
