In the news: Farm Bureau and Timberland Owners Picnic

Grant addressed the New Hampshire Farm Bureau and New Hampshire Timberland Owners Association Picnic in Belmont this week.

From the Concord Monitor:

Grant Bosse, a former legislative aid who is seeking the Republican nomination in the 2nd District, blasted federal farm policy, which he said gave big incentives to only a few select crops. The message, the Hillsboro Republican said, is simple: "If you don't grow corn, you don't count."

From the Laconia Citizen:

Bosse said the Farm Bill was "an abomination" because it said to the many farmers in New Hampshire that "if you don't grow corn, you don't count."

By subsidizing some prices, "we are paying to make food more expensive," said Bosse.
