AmericanHort Participates in Virginia Congressional Visit
On April 26, Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger (D-VA) visited AmericanHort premium member Battlefield Farms in Rapidan, Virginia. Spanberger, a newly-elected member of Congress, who also sits on the House Committee on Agriculture, spent over two hours touring the facility and discussing priority issues.
The AmericanHort advocacy team had worked with Battlefield Farms to coordinate the visit and joined in the discussion, sharing with Rep. Spanberger industry perspectives on several critical priorities, including agricultural labor reform and transportation.
Congressional visits are extremely valuable — giving our nation’s lawmakers and their staff direct exposure to our industry while emphasizing the critical economic contributions our industry makes in communities nationwide. Be on the lookout for more updates on Congressional visits as the year progresses.
