Ag Commissioner: Tough Times For N.C. Farmers

(NORTH CAROLINA NEWS NETWORK) — Farmers — nationwide and in North Carolina — are in trouble. Many are facing financial struggles rarely seen in their communities. The stress and anxiety have forced many to file for bankruptcy, or even worse. State Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler tells WNCN News bankruptcies and suicides have risen in the farming community.  North Carolina farmers have dealt with hurricanes twice in the last three years. The effects have largely been devastating for their land and crops.

    Farmers are the backbone of our country. They work hard for little pay, but they enjoy growing crops. So next time you see one, please be sure to thank them. My hats off to all farmers, and it’s time they are put on the forefront, instead of being an afterthought.

      Totally agree with your comments. And just to remind everyone … a direct quote from Democrat candidate Michael Bloomberg: “I could teach anybody, even people in this room, no offense intended, to be a farmer. It’s a process. You dig a hole, you put a seed in, you put dirt on top, add water, up comes the corn. You could learn that.” Remember that quote when you vote in the primaries.
