U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Gets Some Christmas Spirit From Congressman Meadows

Matt Powell Productions.com- North Carolina Christmas Tree Association promo-documentary project.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – North Carolina comes in first or second place in a lot of categories. Such is the fortune of a State with so much bounty and so many hardworking individuals building small and growing businesses.

Agriculture is one area where the Old North State dominates many categories, such as been the biggest producer of sweet potatoes, or competing for top spots in poultry or hogs.

Another, more seasonally appropriate, category we Tar Heels feature prominently in is Christmas Trees. In fact, we place behind only Oregon in Christmas Tree production each year.

Christmas Trees at the White House, Rockefeller Plaza, and other cultural centers often come from farms in North Carolina.

This year Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus Mark Meadows gifted a North Carolina Christmas Tree to Secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture Sonny Perdue.

Maybe with the help of some Christmas spirit congress can actually pass some meaningful tax cuts that make 2017 a Merry Christmas for all?
