Sarah Frey, founder and CEO of Frey Farms and a best-selling author, has been appointed a member of U.S. Representative and House Committee on Agriculture Chair Glenn “GT” Thompson’s (R-PA) National Agriculture Campaign Advisory Council (NCAC).
“I am excited to welcome Sarah Frey to my National Agriculture Campaign Advisory Committee. Sarah has unique expertise in both agribusiness and government policies and programs. Frey’s experience growing her 80-acre family farm in Southern Illinois to a national fresh produce and beverage business represents extensive experience and commitment to the agriculture industry. I am proud to have her campaign support!” said Congressman GT Thompson.
Frey’s book, The Growing Season, tells the story of how she transformed her moribund family farm into a national fresh produce and beverage powerhouse. Frey is also a member of the FMI – Food Industry Association’s Fresh Food Leadership Council.
“I am excited to work with Congressman Thompson and my colleagues on the Council to help modernize, optimize, and streamline U.S. agricultural farm policy,” said Frey. “I will bring my own expertise and experience to the Council but also share the experiences, challenges, and opportunities of my fellow farmers as we seek to nourish more than 336 million Americans by providing them with safe, nutritious, delicious, sustainable, and affordable produce. From the boot heel of Missouri to Capitol Hill, we will do the right thing for America, its farms and farmers, and millions of working families across the U.S.”
NCAC members advise the Chair on every facet of U.S. food policy, drawing on their first-hand experiences as growers, business executives, and entrepreneurs. They will have a significant impact on the 2023 Farm Bill and its estimated spending of $428 billion and $7.4 trillion in economic activity it spurs.
“I will work tirelessly on behalf of the hard-working Americans who grow, package, ship, and sell the food America loves to eat,” said Frey.
