LOWVILLE — U.S. Sen. Kirsten E. Gillibrand is planning a stop here today to discuss agricultural issues.

Sen. Gillibrand, D-N.Y., is slated to visit Tug Hill Vineyard, 4051 Yancey Road, at 11 a.m.

During the visit, she will “push for passage of the Senate Farm Bill, which includes priorities to help specialty crops, expand markets for farmers and increase the availability of nutritious locally grown food for consumers,” according to a release from her office.

The senator, a member of the President’s Export Council, also is slated to discuss ways to address trade inequities for wineries and “announce new local funding for a program to help promote local agricultural products overseas,” the release stated.
