We’re proud to announce that our partner, Discover Dairy, has launched a virtual learning library for elementary and middle school teachers and students.
With a celebratory milkshake toast and official bell ringing, First Lady Frances Wolf and Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding joined former NFL star, Jason Brown, dairy industry leaders, Feeding PA food bank leaders, Ms. Senior America Esmeralda Ybarra Hetrick, Pennsylvania dairy royalty, Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association, and American Dairy Association North East (ADANE) at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center to kick off the 2020 Fill a Glass with Hope® campaign, a charitable fresh milk distribution program.
These past few weeks and the foreseeable future are uncertain. Our kids are home with us, our work schedules are disrupted and there is a lot of change.
The Dairymen’s Association wants to help ease these days with our new Family Resources page. We have compiled information from best books for reading time to virtual farm tours; all in one place.

Pennsylvania is a unique state with several large metropolitan areas and a vast rural zone. While the Keystone state population may be split on their sports teams and cultural identities, one thing brings us all together: the Pennsylvania Farm Show. For a few days a year all Pennsylvanians can bond over the bustle and excitement surrounding Farm Show.

Pennsylvania runs deep with an agricultural heart. Since its founding in 1787, its agricultural communities have been thriving and fostering a love for Pennsylvania land and the animals and crops it produces. When most people think of dairy farmers, they think of things like milk, cheese, maybe ice cream or overalls; but when I hear “dairy farmer,” I think of a long-standing tradition of passion.
