Entering Farmer 20057

Young first generation farming family. Family of 4 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 40 all natural, grass fed brood beef cows, breeding
bulls and equipment for making hay. We are a mostly a cow/calf operation but do sell whole cow beef patties to a local restaurant. We also have pasture pigs, laying hens and would like to eventual like to get back into raising goats, have production greenhouses and possibly a small dairy if space allows. 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.
