Officials tour farm

The Adams County Farm Bureau recently hosted a legislative tour of two farms. Legislative Chairman Mark Widerman organized the event geared toward farmers’ markets. The first stop was Three Springs Farm. Dave Wenk, his brother John, and his son Ben, showed where they grow some of their produce and talked with legislators on some of the issues concerning farming. The next stop was The McCleaf Farm. Cory McCleaf and his family attend 11 markets in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, and Baltimore. Many subjects from regulations, weather, marketing, and legislation were discussed. In attendance was PA Secretary of Agriculture Russell Redding, Sen. John Joyce, state Sen. Doug Mastriano, Rep. Torren Ecker, Rep. Dan Moul, Adams County Farm Bureau President Brock Widerman, Pennsylvania Farm Bureau ROD Kyle Kotmoyer, Kelly Koch and Harlan Lawson, from Adams County Planning and Development and members of the Adams County Farm Bureau Legislative Committee and board.
