North Carolina’s Fifth District has a rich tradition of farming and ranching. From tobacco and poultry to soybeans and grapes, our farmers and ranchers produce some of the best agricultural products in the world. As our farmers and ranchers continue to be good stewards of North Carolina’s land, I am committed to promoting our local agriculture economy and actively engaging in the creation of responsible farm policies that honor taxpayers while protecting the way of life of North Carolina’s farming families.
As a past member of the House Agriculture Committee and member of the 2018 Farm Bill Conference Committee, I have built a record as an agriculture policy reformer and will keep looking for ways to find innovative legislative solutions to ensure North Carolina’s farmers and ranchers are free to compete, adapt and seize opportunities to safely maximize production and meet the needs of America and the world.
