Athens, TN. May 13, 2019 – County Farm Bureau members from all corners of the 3rd Congressional District gathered to show appreciation to Congressman Chuck Fleischmann for his dedicated service to the 3rd district of Tennessee and to the agricultural community, listen to an update from Washington and share concerns and issues with him from the agricultural perspective.
“Farmers are the backbone of this great nation,” said Congressman Chuck Fleischmann. “To hear from the farmers of Tennessee and the 3rd district is so important to me because these are the men and women who breathe and sleep agriculture. They put food on our table and keep our nation vibrant.”
For almost 100 years, since 1921, Tennessee Farm Bureau has been a voice for farmers on policy matters. From the county all the way to the state level, Farm Bureau leaders take their responsibility as a public policy organization for farmers and by farmers very seriously. By meeting with their elected officials to not only share their issues, but also to express their thanks, Farm Bureau leaders underscore the importance agriculture has to our state and nation.
