Summer in Pennsylvania means hot days, green, growing corn, and for ag kids, county fair! A week out of the summer that my family and I look forward to every year. A whole week spent at the local fair, seeing friends, exhibiting the projects that we worked so hard on and even enjoying some tasty fair food!

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.

Did you know that June is National Dairy Month? A whole month dedicated to celebrating the delicious and healthy foods provided to us by dairy farmers; as well as the important environmental contributions made by dairy farms.
Red hearts and chocolate fill the store, love stories fill our news feeds, and special Valentine’s menus are making their debut. There’s really no avoiding it this time of year.
We just love seeing people in love, but we also want to use this month to show a little love to our dairy farmers who provide for us year around.
