VIDEO: How a Pennsylvania Farm Stand Works with Harvest Valley Farms

July 31, 2018

 

When it comes to local Pennsylvania produce, it doesn’t get much better than a farm stand. These operations are run directly in conjunction with a local farm, allowing vegetables to reach the consumer directly in a short amount of time. What does that mean for you? Best quality, nutrients and flavor! But what happens behind the scenes to make this all happen? And what’s the future look like for farm stands? The Pennsylvania Vegetable Marketing & Research Program chatted with Art King of Harvest Valley Farms to answer those questions (and more). Take a moment to learn for yourself!

  • One of the best ways to engage kids in healthy habits is to have them do the veggie picking. Bring them to a local farm to see how vegetables grow. Spend an afternoon at a pick-your-own farm, then allow the kids to help prepare and cook them. They’ll be rushing to the table to try “their” work. You will be ecstatic at how well this tactic works! #paveggies #buyfreshbuylocalpa #papreferred #homegrownhappiness #buyfreshbuylocal #pennsylvania #vegetables #momlife #healthykids #onthefarm #localfood #farmtotable #kids
