Thumb-area farmers welcome Congresswoman Miller to "Dinner on the Farm"

(TUSCOLA COUNTY) -- Congresswoman Candice Miller will be treated to "Dinner on the Farm" Monday, June 24 at Bernia Farms, located just outside of Akron in Tuscola County. Owned and operated by brothers Art and Jeff Bernia, the family grows corn, soybeans, edible beans, wheat and sugar beets on 3,800 acres. "Dinner on the Farm" is co-sponsored by the Huron, Lapeer, Macomb, Sanilac, St. Clair and Tuscola County Farm Bureaus. In its 9th year, the event provides an opportunity for Congresswoman Miller to hear directly from her agricultural constituents concerning issues important to Thumb-area farmers. Miller will address current agricultural issues and offer farmers a legislative update from Washington, D.C.
