HARRISBURG – Area farmers and those with agriculture-related businesses are invited to a free Farmers Breakfast on Thursday, May 12, with Rep. Kerry Benninghoff (R-Centre/Mifflin) and Pennsylvania Secretary of Agriculture Russell Redding.
The event will run from 8-10 a.m. and will be held in the Reedsville Fire Company Banquet Hall, 16 Firehouse Blvd., Reedsville. Benninghoff and Redding will provide an update on issues faced by farmers in the Commonwealth and answer questions.
“Agriculture is Pennsylvania’s No. 1 industry and is absolutely critical to our local economy and the health and well-being of our community,” Benninghoff said. “This meeting will give farmers an opportunity to learn more about the laws and regulations impacting agriculture, and the state resources that are available to them. It will also be an opportunity for us, as state officials, to hear directly from those doing the important work, and better understand the challenges they face so that we can help them succeed.”
While the event is free to attend, space is limited. To RSVP, residents should call Benninghoff’s Reedsville district office at 717-667-1175 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
