“This is a great opportunity for our local farmers and producers to learn more about what’s being done to support the industry in Harrisburg,” Causer said while describing the event. “It’s also an opportunity to discuss ongoing concerns for the future with us and our state Agriculture secretary.”

“I encourage everyone involved in the industry, from crop and livestock farmers to timber and maple syrup producers, to join us,” Owlett said. “It is important we work together to ensure the future of this industry that is so vital to our state and regional economies.”
