Williams was a proud sponsor at the PA Farm Show, which brought agriculture and natural gas — two of Pennsylvania’s largest industries — together. We love attending the annual Pennsylvania Farm Show, not only because it gives us the chance to eat great food and look at adorable animals but also because we get the opportunity to catch up and talk with our friends in the agricultural community. This year’s Farm Show has been notable for many reasons, but here are five that stick with us the most:
- Horse hitching
Williams was proud to co-sponsor the Celebrity Draft Horse Team Driving Contest, which benefits the Farm Show Scholarship Fund. The Jan. 9 event with legislators and representatives from the agricultural industry was great fun to watch.
- Public Officials Day
The Jan. 10 luncheon saw the announcement of a new economic impact study of agriculture, which found that the industry has a $135.7 billion annual impact in Pennsylvania. Agriculture, along with natural gas production, is one of the state’s biggest industries, and the two have a long history of working together.
The food was the star, and natural gas powers many of your Farm Show favorites.
- New calving corner
Just look at how cute these new additions to the world are.
- DEP clean water exhibit
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection featured an educational exhibit of clean local water actions and activities. The importance of clean water is a value shared by Williams, which is why we’ve been proud to support efforts such as a community rain garden in Wyoming County and other environmental stewardship programs through our grant program.
The 102nd Pennsylvania Farm Show has been amazing, and we look forward to participating again next year!
