STEWARTSTOWN – In line with her unwavering dedication to accessibility and transparency, Sen. Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-York) will host her second annual Farmers’ Appreciation Breakfast. The event will allow for greater dialogue and collaboration within the agricultural community, both locally and at the state level.
The event will take place on Thursday, Feb. 8, at 7 a.m. at the Eureka Volunteer Fire & Ambulance Company, 82 N. Main St., in Stewartstown. The breakfast meeting provides a unique platform for local farmers to engage in discussions, share concerns, and explore ways to enhance the agricultural landscape in the region.
The event will feature an update from Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding.
“I look forward to welcoming members of our strong and vibrant agriculture community at this upcoming breakfast meeting,” Phillips-Hill said. “This annual event is an excellent platform to foster collaboration and address the pressing issues facing our farmers and is helpful as these hardworking individuals gear up for planting season.”
Attendees will also see a presentation from York College of Pennsylvania’s Dean Charles MacVean, who recently launched the new Environmental Horticulture program at the college. Phillips-Hill said this program is a major addition to the local community that will enhance the agriculture-related educational landscape for students in York County.
