Perdue visits Maine vegetable grower

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue and Rep. Bruce Poliquin, a Republican from Maine, tour Sandy River Farms with the farm owners, the York Family, on Wednesday, Sept. 19.

The farm operations, located near Farmington, Maine, include an organic dairy as well as a vegetable farm and retail farm market.

“Their 600 acre organic dairy and crop organization has utilized USDA programs over the years and is still thriving,” Perdue wrote on Twitter.

Sandy River Farms grows and sells freshly picked sweet corn grown on the rich soil along the Sandy River in addition to cucumbers, organic tomatoes, apples and squash, according to the farm website.
