Pennsylvania Farm Show

January 6, 2010

Every January since I can remember I would go to the Pennsylvania Farm Show with my family. My parents were never the ones to take me, I would normally go with my grandparents or with my aunt and uncle. When I was in middle school and high school, my cousins and I would take an “educational field trip” on Wednesday of the Farm Show. We would go on Wednesdays to 1. avoid the weekend crowds and 2. so that we could watch the beef cattle show. This show has since been moved to Mondays. Nowadays members of my extended family still frequent the Farm Show, but typically it is on the first weekend. I enjoy walking around and seeing the best Pennsylvania Ag has to offer on display. If you aren’t familiar with this event, you should check out the Farm Show website.

Here is my top ten favorite things to see or do at the PA Farm Show!!

1. Drinking fresh made MILKSHAKES (i love the chocolate ones!!)

2. Looking at all the new farm equipment

3. Hanging out with my best friend and the limmies (limousin cattle) she helps take care of

4.  What could be better than a sculpture made from BUTTER

5. Checking out all the Hay Show entries and whose hay won

6. FRESH CUT FRIES!!!!

7. Picking my favorite Christmas Tree at the PA Christmas Tree Display

8. Trying the free food samples with two of my cousins (these ones happen to be 3 and 6 years old)

9. Seeing old friends and college professors

10. Looking at the unusual poultry, water fowl, and rabbits

Stay tuned for a picture post of all things PA Farm Show!!

    Glad to see another blogger talking about the PA Farm Show. I posted several entries about the show in 2009 along with three videos on Youtube. Also posted a pre-show entry this year inviting readers to tweet up on Tuesday the 12th: Your Small Kitchen Garden. We’re meeting at the veggie growers’ booth in the food court at 1:00PM. If you’re at the show then, please join the tweetup!

    All that said, I look forward to seeing your blog develop. There’s a small but growing community of PA bloggers who discuss issues related to growing food, and it’s a pleasure being part of that community.
