Sen. Franken recently visited Roger and Karen Strom's farm to hear from farmers and business leaders about federal agriculture policy.

Franken supports the young farmer program. The average age of farmers is 50, he said. It's not just about helping the next generation of farmers, it's also a national security issue.

He is frustrated that Congress didn't pass farm legislation. While the Senate passed its farm bill, the House wasn't able to bring it for a vote, he said.
