Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf and Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding kicked off the 2020 Pennsylvania Farm Show, inviting the show’s thousands of competitive exhibitors and nearly half a million visitors to embrace the 2020 theme and Imagine the Opportunities. Throughout the eight-day event, Farm Show-goers will have a chance to explore the breadth of Pennsylvania agriculture, its heritage, and the innovation driving its future.
“Food, fuel, and fiber. Billions in economic impact, hundreds of thousands of jobs. This is Pennsylvania agriculture,” said Gov. Wolf. “It’s an industry fueled by innovators and full of opportunity, and it’s all on display and ready to explore at the Pennsylvania Farm Show.”
“We’re challenging the industry to turn dreams to reality; to diversify and break into new markets; to walk a new path and exceed the demands; and to empower the next generation,” said Secretary Redding. “We’re challenging Pennsylvania’s consumers to take every opportunity to support the industry; to visit farm stands and farmers markets; to look for local names at grocers; to make memories on Pennsylvania farms; and to feed the imaginations of our youngest Pennsylvanians through hands-on agricultural experiences.”
