Congressman Richard Hudson, Rep. Mark Brody and Senator Gene McLaurin Visit Bountiful Harvest Farm in Anson County

— Written By and last updated by Chris Austin

It is great to see some interest in local farms and food from our state and congressional representatives. The three men met Gary Sikes at his farm in Anson county where they sampled range-fed poultry and discussed potential concerns. Along with the representatives, there were several local foods’ producers and a plethora of listeners. We can only hope this brings some real change in the future and some great support for our small producers and local foods. Please contact your representatives with concerns along with successes. We really want the public and government to be aware of all that we have to offer.

 Thanks to the Sikes family for allowing us to visit their farm and home!
