‘Today’s Agriculture’ will be back (and bigger) at 2013 Pa. Farm Show


HARRISBURG, Pa. — The inaugural Today’s Agriculture display, unveiled prior to the 2012 Pennsylvania Farm Show, showed how crops are grown and food animals are raised.

Organizers say discussions are under way that will take the exhibit to a whole new level next January.

Many organizations, with employees who are passionate about the agriculture industry, are collaborating to develop a bigger and better display: larger area; better use of visual media; more ways to become engaged; even more farmers and industry representatives available to answer questions; and a closer connection to the food on your plate.
