My Position on Agriculture

Supporting Virginia’s Crop & Livestock Producers

Rep. Spanberger is working in Congress to make sure the voices of Virginia’s farmers, producers, and agribusinesses are heard. She is a proud multi-year recipient of the “Friend of Farm Bureau Award” from the Virginia Farm Bureau.

As a Member of the U.S. House Agriculture Committee and Ranking Member of the Committee’s Conservation, Research, and Biotechnology Subcommittee, she’s focused on advancing priorities important to Virginia’s crop and livestock producers and championing policies that increase the long-term viability of farmers, their families, and the rural economy. While traveling across the district, she has met with growers to talk about the many challenges they face —from trade concerns to young farmers struggling to access the capital they need to build successful farm and ranch operations.

Rep. Spanberger is also committed to expanding farmers’ access to domestic and foreign markets, strengthening voluntary conservation programs, and expanding access to high-speed broadband internet. In 2022, she successfully led the largest federal investment in conservation programs since the Dust Bowl, which was signed into law as part of the Inflation Reduction Act.
