Abstract

The Founding Fathers recognized the importance of agriculture. George Washington and Thomas Jefferson were avid farmers who sought efficient farming techniques. Washington told Jefferson that a modernized grain thresher would “be among the most valuable institutions in this Country.” Throughout U.S. history, state and federal governments have favored the agricultural industry. To this day, the federal government heavily subsidizes agriculture, and every state has a right-to-farm statute.
