Enjoyed visiting with members of the Hillsdale County Farm Bureau and Eaton County Farm Bureau this week. We discussed everything from the USMCA to mental health awareness. During the stop at Jim Orr's farm in Charlotte, it was an honor to receive the Friend of Farm Bureau award for my work on behalf of Michigan's agriculture community.
Congratulations to the Blonde family who are also Hillsdale County Farm Bureau members!
