The holidays are my favorite times of year. Whether it’s watching endless Hallmark movies with my family, searching the Christmas tree lot far and wide for the perfect tree, or having the perfect excuse to eat tons of my favorite foods, the holiday season highlights the need of food, love, family and faith.

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.
The new “Destination Dairy” Northeast Hall will be unveiled during the 2020 Pennsylvania Farm Show from January 4-11 in Harrisburg, Pa. Destination Dairy will feature the Calving Corner as the cornerstone exhibit, giving Farm Show visitors the opportunity to witness the dairy birthing process.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year….PA Farm Show time! In just a few days, the 2020 Farm Show will open and our famous milkshakes will be in the hands of all of our fans.
We’ll kick-off our Farm Show run with our sixth annual Fill a Glass with Hope event, featuring celebrity milkshake servers, a former NFL player turned farmer, Pa. Secretary of Agriculture Russell Redding, Ms. Senior America Esmeralda Ybarra Hetrick and business and food bank leaders. Join us in the Cameron Street food court at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 3.
