Reed Listens to Local Grape Farmers in Westfield
Today Tom Reed listened to members of the National Grape Cooperative Association during a visit to the Grape Discovery Center in Westfield to discuss issues facing Western New York’s wine and grape industry.
“I am pleased to be at the Grape Discovery Center to support the Lake Erie region’s vibrant wine and grape industry,” Reed said. “Agriculture is the backbone of our regional economy. We must make sure that policies in Washington care for our farmers and allow farms to thrive now and for future generations.”
The Grape Discovery Center is the official Visitor’s Center for the Lake Erie Concord Grape Belt, designated a New York State Heritage Area in 2006. Developed by the Concord Grape Belt Heritage Association, it seeks to be an experiential destination that supports and promotes the grape industry through sharing stories and engaging, educating and informing the public about all things grape.
