ANNAPOLIS, MD. – Yesterday afternoon, the Board of Directors of the Maryland Farm Bureau (MDFB) convened at the Maryland State House for a productive meeting with Governor Wes Moore.

Notable topics included the issue of solar siting on agricultural land, strategies to combat food insecurity, the expansion of urban agriculture, the ongoing success of tire recycling programs, and the importance of accurate assessments on agricultural products. These issues will be followed thoroughly by MDFB as we prepare for Maryland’s Legislative Session next year.
“We greatly appreciate Governor Moore taking the time to meet with Maryland farmers to discuss some of the important issues facing our industry,” said MDFB President Jamie Raley. “By maintaining an open line of communication with our elected officials, we are confident that Maryland Farm Bureau can continue to strengthen and grow agriculture in our state.”
