We are so excited to tell you about our plans for the 2015 Pennsylvania Farm Show! Last year was such a great success, that we’ve been hard at work recruiting some exceptional partners to join us in 2015. Fillmore Container’s Preservation Station will be on the Main Floor in the Family Living area of the Pennsylvania Farm Show at the PA Farm Show Complex & Expo Center in Harrisburg, PA, January 10 – 17, 2015
Our presenters will touch on just about everything from canning and fermenting, to dehydrating and healthy Mason jar meals, and so much more. In addition to demos at our Preservation Station, many of our presenters will also be presenting at the Family Living Stage.
So, without further ado… here’s our PA Farm Show line-up.
Marisa McClellan, popular food blogger and author of Food in Jars and Preserving by the Pint, will join us to talk about basic water bath canning tips and how to reduce the use of sugar by using other sweeteners. Marisa will also be available for book signing.
Amanda Feifer is the fermentation educator behind the blog Phickle.com. She teaches classes on topics ranging from hot sauce and miso to sauerkraut and kombucha. Her fermentation writing has been featured on The Huffington Post and Food Riot. Keep your eyes peeled (and your vegetables unpeeled) for her upcoming book on vegetable fermentation (Fair Winds Press, 2015).
Buy Fresh Buy Local will talk about how to find, choose and appreciate great local foods, and support the farmers and lands which produce them.
Penn State Cooperative Extension will teach the basics of pressure canning, including meats.
Daniel Gasteiger, top 20 garden blogger, newspaper gardening and food writer, and author of Yes, You Can! And Freeze and Dry it, Too, will share tips and techniques for dehydrating food. Daniel will also be available for book signing.
Robin Sue Joss, popular food blogger, at Big Red Kitchen, and the queen of Mason jar meals will share her secrets for making fast, healthy family meals, and tips for using Mason jars for storing and serving meals.
Buy Fresh Buy Local will return to talk more about how to find, choose and appreciate great local foods, and support the farmers and lands which produce them.
Penn State Cooperative Extension will teach us everything we need to know about preserving Tomatoes.
We’ll continue to post updates about the schedule of presenters as well as send email announcements about our scheduled events (and giveaways) throughout the week of the show. If you haven’t signed up for our emails, now’s the time.
We hope to see you at the PA Farm Show!
