U.S. Rep. Abigail Spanberger will host a Farm Bill Summit on Tuesday to hear from Virginia crop and livestock producers about their priorities as Farm Bill negotiations continue.
The daylong event at Meadow Event Park in Caroline County will include sessions focused on several Farm Bill titles and Virginia priorities. Experts will join panels on these issues, take questions from attendees, and provide their perspectives on the future of federal programs that impact Virginia’s farm economy.
