WG Hosts Annual Ag Tour of Legislative Interns at Rousseau Farms

Last Friday, Western Growers teamed with partner Arizona agriculture organizations to host an agricultural tour for a bi-partisan group of legislative interns from the Arizona House and Senate. The tour, which took place at facilities west of downtown Phoenix, is an annual event designed to educate up-and-coming young professionals on the importance of agriculture in Arizona.

Western Growers’ member company Rousseau Farms hosted the group. During the visit, Kami Weddle of Rousseau Farms led the group and gave an overview of the produce industry, vegetable processing and food safety rules and regulations.  

Western Growers would like to thank the interns and other ag organizations who participated in the event. We would especially like to thank WG board member Will Rousseau, Kami Weddle and the rest of the Rousseau Farms employees for their time in hosting the tour.
