The PA Farm Show Brings Us Together

Guest blogger Paige Peiffer is the 2019-2020 Pennsylvania State Dairy Princess

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.

Walk a Mile in My Work Boots

Guest blogger, Gabrielle Swavely is the 2018-2019 Centre County Dairy Princess

There’s a pair of old Carolina work boots that sat in the back of my mom’s closet for 27 years. They were retired in 1991, but still full of life. It was only a matter of time until my mom would clean out her closet and throw those old boots away, having no use for them anymore, until I came along. My mom was raised on a family farm but when my great grandparents, my mom’s grandparents, passed away, the Corl Farm was sold to a local Amish family and my mom hung up her boots for good.

Won’t you join me and take a seat? But, I forgot to introduce myself, I am Vannika Rice, the 2019-2020 Pennsylvania State Alternate Dairy Princess.
