PA Farm Show: Inspiring Pennsylvania's Story Jan. 5-12 In Harrisburg

The 103rd Pennsylvania Farm Show, running from January 5-12 in Harrisburg, will honor agriculture’s rich heritage and promising future with this year’s theme, Inspiring Pennsylvania’s Story.
The theme, which will be represented throughout of the weeklong event, will include related events like a daily story time for children, interviews with real Pennsylvanians working in agriculture, and opportunities for attendees to engage and tell their own stories.
“The agriculture industry and the people within it have a powerful story that has impacted our lives for centuries; it’s a story of passion, a story of conviction, a story of purpose and meaning, a story of hope,” said Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding. “It is a story that is constantly evolving with new pages being written all the time. It’s our job to keep telling that story--to help shape the future of an industry that powers, provides for, and inspires Pennsylvania—and that is precisely what we intend to do during the 103rd show.”
“Each year, the Pennsylvania Farm Show uses a theme to communicate our vision for the future of agriculture, and this year’s theme speaks to the importance of using our voices to champion our industry, to be the storytellers expressing our mission and our purpose,” said Pennsylvania Farm Show Executive Director Sharon Altland. “I encourage Pennsylvanians from across the commonwealth to come to Harrisburg this January, tell their stories, and celebrate our shared sense of community at the 103rd annual Farm Show.
