Governor Corbett Opens 2012 Pennsylvania Farm Show

Harrisburg – Governor Tom Corbett today kicked off the 2012 Pennsylvania Farm
Show by welcoming visitors to celebrate the state’s agriculture industry.

“The Pennsylvania Farm Show is a celebration of agriculture from farm to fork,”
said Governor Corbett. “Over the next eight days, agriculture will take center stage and more than 400,000 people will come to pay tribute to our foremost citizens in our foremost industry.”

The governor shared accomplishments that have kept Pennsylvania growing over
the past year, including:

· Signing Act 78, which made PA Preferred™ a permanent branding program to
help producers market their products to consumers. More than 2,000
businesses are registered;

· The permanent protection of nearly 13,000 acres of farmland statewide
through Pennsylvania’s nation-leading farmland preservation program; and

· Establishing the Pennsylvania Dairy Leadership Council, composed of
individuals representing all key dairy industry sectors, to coordinate the
development and expansion of Pennsylvania’s dairy industry.

During the opening ceremony, Governor Corbett recognized members of the state’s
PA Preferred™ marketing program. PA Preferred identifies agricultural products
grown and processed in Pennsylvania to consumers and major retail, wholesale and distribution chains interested in supporting local farmers and businesses.

The program’s trademark is a gold checkmark inside a blue keystone that can be
found on products year-round at farmers markets, restaurants, food processors,
grocery chains, craft breweries and wineries.

“Pennsylvania is home to an abundant and diverse food supply, and buying PA
Preferred helps support farmers and local businesses that work to produce quality products and make investments in local economies,” said Governor Corbett. “Made in PA. It makes a difference.”

Part of the opening ceremonies was the “Parade of Agriculture,” which highlighted each of the show’s departments. Representatives from Penn State Cooperative Extension, youth participants, and exhibitors displayed livestock and dairy animals, commodities and entries from the Family Living Department during the ceremony.

The 2012 Pennsylvania Farm Show is the largest indoor agricultural event in the
nation, featuring more than 6,000 animals, 10,000 competitive exhibits and 300
commercial exhibitors.

The show runs Jan. 7-14 at the Pennsylvania Farm Show
Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg. Admission is free and parking is $10.
