Entering Farmer 20057
Young first-generation farming family. Family of 5 currently residing in Central Pennsylvania.
The head of our operation has many years of farm experience and the other is a College of
Agriculture graduate from Penn State with a Bachelor of Science degree in Horticulture. After high school the head of our farm bought a few beef cows and has grown our herd to over 50 all natural, grass fed brood beef cows, breeding bulls and equipment for making hay. We do farmers markets selling our beef locally and the Centre County Grange Fair with a hamburger stand. We also breed and raise pigs, laying hens and goats. We would like to eventually have production greenhouses. We practice sustainable soil methods with cover crops and no till which allows us to give our cattle a varied diet while protecting and growing the soil.
