On Thursday, Aug. 4, Governor Tom Wolf and Agriculture Secretary Redding were surrounded by recipients of a diversity of PA Farm Bill grant program funding to highlight the Wolf Administration’s unwavering support for Pennsylvania’s $132.5 billion agriculture industry. The PA Farm Bill celebration was held at the 150-year old Hess Farm in State College.

“Agriculture is the backbone of Pennsylvania’s economy. When farmers succeed, we all succeed,” said Gov. Wolf. “I created the Pennsylvania Farm Bill to support the future success of agriculture in the commonwealth, to remove barriers to entry for first generation agriculturalists, to grow infrastructure for improved food security, to support the sustainability of our farms, and invest in opportunities for the next generation of agricultural leaders.
