Protect the Valley’s Long-Standing Ag Heritage

A letter to the editor in the Kalispell Daily Inter Lake expresses support for the Flathead Valley’s legacy of — and the importance of — local food production in the face of population growth and increasing losses of agricultural land.

From Matt Gebhardt’s letter: “Sound policies must consider items like the long-standing agricultural heritage, the communities ag feeds, and ag’s economic contributions to the Valley and world.”
