Dairy farmers and the dairy industry in Pennsylvania are an important part of the state’s economy. The Pennsylvania dairy industry is the largest sector of agriculture in the state, adding billions of dollars to the Commonwealth’s economy.
We’re excited to be a part of the first Breakfast on the Farm!
This FREE event includes a tour of a Pennsylvania dairy farm and a chance to learn about modern dairy operations, robotic milking and cow feeding.
We were excited to be a part of the first-ever #ChoosePADairy Breakfast on the Farm event at Kurtland Farms.
More than 1,100 people attended and received an inside look at the Pennsylvania dairy industry while learning how to support local farmers by choosing Pennsylvania dairy products.
July is National Ice Cream month and the 2nd Annual Pursue Your Scoops Ice Cream Trail is here.
This year, there are three trails to choose from Western, South Central and Eastern Pennsylvania. The trails feature hand-selected PA Preferred® chosen creameries with a variety of experiences — from an urban experience to a true cow-to-cone farm experience.
Each year, we partner with the Center for Dairy Excellence Foundation of Pennsylvania to offer ten $3,000 Student Leader scholarships to undergraduate students.
To qualify, students must demonstrate a commitment to working in the dairy industry in the future and be enrolled in a related undergraduate major. The purpose of these scholarships is to provide recognition, encouragement, and financial assistance to outstanding students enrolled in academic programs that support the dairy industry. Of these monetary awards, one is specifically designated for an incoming freshman.
Congratulations to our 2019 Student Leader Scholarship Winners!
