Supporting Pennsylvania's farmers and protecting its natural resources
Senator Casey believes that our farmers play an essential role in supporting our rural communities and feeding families across the state and beyond. Senator Casey has worked to secure wins through past Farm Bills to support dairy farmers, organic agriculture, specialty crops, and other industries critical to Pennsylvania’s agriculture landscape.
As stewards of the land, farmers contribute significantly to conservation efforts to protect and improve our shared natural resources. To support these efforts, Senator Casey continues to advocate for conservation investments that contribute to farm income and also address climate change and improve water quality, including additional support to improve the Chesapeake Bay. Additionally, Senator Casey has led efforts to connect excess food products with families in need through commodity purchases to support food bank distribution, as well as the establishment of farm-to-food-bank projects.
