As a third generation farmer — and the only active farmer in the Senate — there’s been no learning curve for Jon in his fight to protect Montana’s family farms and ranches.
Jon still farms the same land outside Big Sandy that his grandparents homesteaded a century ago. He uses that experience to serve as a voice for agricultural producers across rural America.
Jon understands that when jobs disappear from rural communities, those communities start to disappear too. That’s why he’s focused on creating new jobs and boosting business across rural Montana.
From food safety issues to wildlife management, one-size-fits all rules and regulations don’t always work for rural America. Jon fights to ensure that when policymakers in Washington make decisions, they consider the real effects those decisions will have on folks making their livings off the land.
