The 105th Pennsylvania Farm Show will take place from January 9-16, 2021. In light of the current public health crisis and keeping safety a priority, Pennsylvania’s agriculture industry will be celebrated virtually for the 105th show. The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture will bring stories of agriculture into your home and explore with the industry how we can cultivate a brighter tomorrow for Pennsylvania’s leading industry.
Pennsylvanians are invited to experience all that agriculture has to offer through a variety of virtual events that will be featured on social media and through the Pennsylvania Cable Network, as well as a vast range of virtual education exhibits that will live right here on the web starting Saturday, January 9, 2021.
Penn State Cooperative Extension adds a good dimension to the virtual show with informative webinars and lively commentary. Webinars include: “Creating a Backyard Oasis for Wildlife,” “Candling Eggs at Home,” and “Protecting Your Family’s Water.” There are a whole host of programs available!
