We’re hosting lunchtime virtual forums for farmers and markets as we work together to adapt our operations and business plans during the coronavirus pandemic.
This week, Pennsylvania Secretary of Agriculture Russell Redding will provide an update on how agriculture is faring in the state during the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ll discuss how farmers are managing, strategies for juggling the increased demands placed on them, and the outlook for the future. Submit your questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
