We will be partnering with Lancaster Central Market on Saturday, Oct. 7th for the “Harvest Breakfast” at Central Market. Central Market will provide delicious options for breakfast, and the Ag Council will host an interactive display on Penn Square.

Ag Week will include educational sessions and activities related to the impact of agriculture on the local and far-reaching economies and how agriculture is working to improve local water quality. “Denim & Pearls” fundraising dinner will celebrate local foods, while fellowshipping at Stoltzfus Homestead and Gardens in Intercourse.

The Lancaster Chamber is organizing behind the scenes tours at assorted ag and food-related businesses throughout the county. (click for details)
