After a year of virtual programming due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Pennsylvania Farm Show opens to the public on Saturday morning.
Pennsylvania Secretary of Agriculture Russell Redding announced the PA Farm Show’s intention to host a live event Jan. 8-15 during a Facebook Live in October from Vale Wood Farms in Cambria County Thursday morning.
The theme for 2022 is “Harvesting More”, which is a game of the 2021 theme “Cultivating Tomorrow”.
âIt’s natural to harvest after you’ve grown,â says Redding. “Following the 2021 theme of cultivating tomorrow, we will harvest more in 2022.”
The Farm Show seeks to reap more conservation, diversity in agriculture, investment in agriculture and more, says Redding.

The PA Farm Show retains some virtual programming, however, says Redding. The Duckling, Beehive and The Calving Corner exhibitions will be shown online, along with other selected events.
Redding says the 2021 Farm Show’s virtual lineup provided access to people who wouldn’t traditionally have been able to attend an event in person.
