102nd PA Farm Show moo-ves into Harrisburg

An annual tradition prepares for kickoff in Harrisburg and will have you thinking warm thoughts.

The 102nd Pennsylvania Farm Show will run this year from January 6th to the 13th.  The show generally draws hundreds of thousands of visitors to take in any number of the nearly 12,000 competitive exhibits.

The PA Farm Show is the largest indoor agricultural exhibition in the US.  This year's theme is 'Strength in our Diversity'.  Russel Redding, PA Agricultural Secretary, says, "Our agriculture industry is made up of men and women, young and old, rural and urban... they are German, Irish, African-American, Amish... English, and many others.  They come from the Allegheny Plateau to the Piedmont region."

The Agricultural Industry employs nearly half a million people in the commonwealth and contributes $74.5 billion to the state economy.
