U.S. Representative Gwen Graham visits Madison

Back in December, U.S. House Representative Gwen Graham announced that she was kicking off the upcoming new year with a North Florida Farm Tour of all 14 counties in the Second Congressional District from Jan. 19 to Jan. 23. To begin her tour, Graham held a  panel discussion at FAMU, visited a tomato farm in Gadsden County and explored the workings of an oyster farm in Wakulla County on Tuesday, Jan. 19.

On the second day of her tour, Graham visited Murphy Citrus Nursery in Taylor County and then headed Madison County on Wednesday, Jan. 20. During her time in Madison, Graham traveled to Gary Mills’ tree farm and Greene Timber Farm.

Many members of the Florida Forestry Department, the Madison County Farm Bureau and Florida Forestry Association also attended this tour. While at Greene Timber Farm, Graham learned about the forestry industry and, after enjoying lunch, she opened up the floor for those who attended to express any concerns within the forestry industry.

“Getting information from people firsthand will help us make better decisions,” said Graham.

After her tour in Madison, Graham moved on into Jefferson County to tour Waukeenah Fertilizer & Farm Supply.

On Friday, Jan. 22, Graham will be visiting Panama City Port Authority and travel to Beaver Farms in Altha, Fl. for a Cattle Workday to finish off the tour.
