Our mission is so clear – and I know it’s attainable.  Our state is the second most agriculturally diverse state in the nation and agriculture is one of our top three industries.  I have the privilege to work with Michigan’s farmers and work to connect those dots.  I visit with our farmers and know they have the food and, their mission, after all, is to feed people.

It sounds easy – and it should be.  But we have a ways to go.  It’s heartbreaking when you hear stories about farmers tilling crops under because they don’t have a market for them.  It’s my job to make sure that doesn’t happen.  There is plenty of food.  We have to get it to the people that need it.
