Oklahoma farmer warns of price hikes at grocery stores likely by summer


NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Oklahoma farmer Ben Neal joins “The Ingraham Angle” to discuss how the painful price hikes felt by the agriculture industry will soon be felt by consumers in grocery stores.

BENNEAL: We’ll hit on all fronts for every possible expense, from fertilizer to fuel to labor insurance, everything in between our packing supplies. So we operate a small farm in Oklahoma. One hundred percent of our sales are farm-to-home deliveries. And so we drive across the state. And you know, fuel costs are really hurting us…I would say our increases are about 25-30%, and I think that will trickle down to grocery stores soon. In addition to what we’re already seeing, these fertilizer price increases haven’t really affected grocery prices yet. They will start arriving this summer.
