Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding and First Lady of Agriculture Nina Redding shopped local at York Central Market House for a PA Preferred® family Thanksgiving celebration."Shopping locally and looking for the PA Preferred checkmark directly supports Pennsylvania family farms and supports jobs and the economy right where you live," said Secretary Redding. "As we spend time with our loved ones, giving thanks for the season and harvest, we share our gratitude to the farmers and agricultural workers who fill our dinner tables this holiday season and every day." PA Preferred encourages shoppers to "check for the check" to ensure they are taking home trusted products that were grown or produced in Pennsylvania. The program's new website, launched earlier this fall, enables users to easily search for PA Preferred vendors in their neighborhoods, learning the stories of Pennsylvania farmers and agribusinesses and the products they offer.
