The two agencies celebrated Pennsylvania’s investments in farmer-veterans in a ceremony at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center."Those who serve in our armed services and those who work in production agriculture are committed to a higher cause. Love of country and its defense and love of humanity and growing the food that people need to survive," said Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding.
