U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik’s office is taking public input from farmers and those in the agriculture industry as Congress once again writes a Farm Bill to boost the sector of the economy.

Stefani’s office announced Thursday it is opening an online portal and survey for farmers to register their opinions on the issue.

A version of the Farm Bill is worked on every five years at the federal level, meant to provide support for the agriculture industry.

New York is one of the top dairy producing states in the country and also leads on production for apples, corn for grain and hay.

“Agriculture is the backbone of Upstate New York and the North Country. As Congress is working to draft this year’s Farm Bill, farmers across New York’s 21st District can use this input form to directly share their priorities with me, so I can bring them to the highest levels,” Stefanik said.
