CLEVELAND, Ga.—Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) met with members of the White County Farm Bureau yesterday to discuss challenges facing the local agriculture industry and provide an update on key issues in Washington. During the meeting, Collins answered questions on a variety of issues ranging from compliance to immigration.

“Our farmers here in White County and throughout Northeast Georgia are working day and night to put food on our tables, and I’m thankful for the opportunity to hear from them directly on the issues facing the agriculture industry,” said Collins. “As part of a family farm, I understand the challenges our farming communities are dealing with, and I will continue to advocate on their behalf as Congress works to support American farmers.” 

While in Cleveland, Collins toured London Farms, Seabolt Farms, and Nix Farms, where he cut silage, shucked corn, and visited a sheep farm.

“The farms we visited this week have been family-owned and operated for generations, and it’s incredible to see firsthand the heart and soul these Georgia farmers pour into their products,” said Collins.
