Thursday, December 10, 2015

LANSING, Mich. – Gov. Rick Snyder today announced the reappointment of Trever Meachum, of Hartford, to the Commission of Agriculture and Rural Development. 

The five-member bipartisan board has the responsibility to recommend, and in some cases determine, policy on food, agriculture, and rural development issues. No more than three members may be from the same political party. 

“Trever has tremendous experience working in the agricultural industry and I look forward to the many contributions he will make to the commission,” Snyder said. 

Meachum is the production manager of High Acres Fruit Farm in Hartford and owns a 1,000 acre fruit, vegetable and cash crop farm with his parents and brother. He also serves as the secretary for the Hartford Township Planning Commission and as board clerk for the Hartford Federated Church. Meachum is chairman of the Michigan Apple Research Committee and finance chair of the International Fruit Tree Association. He is also a member of the Michigan Agricultural Cooperative Marketing Association Board of Directors and Apple Committee. He continues to represent Republicans.

Meachum will serve a four-year term expiring Dec. 31, 2019. His appointment is subject to the advice and consent of the state Senate.
