Agricultural Future Summit
"The Many Voices of Bradford County's Agricultural Future"
EMHR is a proud supporter of an initiative for creating a sustainable agricultural industry in Bradford County. Aimed at developing better models for agricultural opportunities, this effort should benefit our region's approach to a new agricultural vision. With a call to "rally around the farm", the Bradford County Conservation District is leading this initiative. A Summit was held November 7th, at the Wysox Fire Hall. A broad representation of the agricultural industry came out to share ideas on the future for farming and agricultural lands, hear from our PA Secretary of Agriculture as well as experts in the field. Details on the initiative are provided at their website - www.AgCoalitionBC.org and in the summit brochure .
