The PA Farm Show in Review

The PA Farm Show has come and gone. We are sad to see it go, but excited to share all the wonderful things we learned!

A big THANKS to all our excellent presenters – Food in Jars, Phickle, Big Red Kitchen, Buy Fresh Buy Local, Daniel Gasteiger, Penn State Cooperative Extension, Chef Sean Arnold and Chef Jim Switzenberg.

It was so wonderful to see such passion for food – whether it was canning, fermenting, dehydrating, creating Mason jar meals, or artfully crafted meals. Every presentation left us craving more!

For those that were not able to attend, we will be sharing recipes and tips throughout the next couple of months. Until then, enjoy this snapshot of Fillmore Container’s Preservation Station at the PA Farm Show 2015.
