State Representative Dawn Keefer's Farmers Breakfast

Residents interested in attending my free annual Farmer’s Breakfast, sponsored by PennAg Industries Association and Seneca Foods, should mark Thursday, Oct. 10, on their calendars. That’s the date I will hold the breakfast from 8-10 a.m. at the Wellsville Fire Company, 95 Community St., Wellsville. The deadline to RSVP is Friday, Sept. 30.

During this informative event, attendees will receive an update on issues that impact them. The guest speaker this year is Jennifer Reed-Harry, an assistant vice president at Pennag Industries. She will speak about water issues the agricultural industry is facing.

There have been a lot of new and expanded efforts in agricultural programming in Pennsylvania. Understanding the challenges and pressures the state’s agriculture industry has been enduring, lawmakers worked with agricultural communities, businesses and stakeholders to develop a strategy to help agriculture grow in Pennsylvania. I’m excited to share these new opportunities and resources with farmers in my district. Make sure you don’t miss my annual Farmers’ Breakfast where you’ll learn not only about the new programs, but how to successfully access those them as well.
