Tours allow your elected officials to see the direct impact on the economy, local community and how federal policies are impacting the growth and success of your fresh produce business. Members of Congress and their staff are precisely interested in the thoughts and opinions of their constituents back home.

Hometown in-district engagement is a vital way to provide a first-hand account and illustrate how you work, day in and day out, to provide healthy, safe and affordable food to all Americans.

1. Host a tour of your operation with help from our toolkit 

2. Submit tour information here and send photos to us to commemorate the tour*
