delvalfields_largeOur approach is simple. We strive to educate the general public about the issues facing small farming. We host events with broad appeal and incorporate local farming topics into those events. The aim is to help people reconnect to the farming community and realize its importance to our region as a whole.

In addition to outreach, we work directly with farmers and producers to further the economic development of the region. We have programs that facilitate communication and cooperation throughout Pennsylvania.

Our goal is to preserve our state’s historic farming achievements, enhance current activities and encourage a better a future for local farming.


We create events around popular attractions, topics and interests. At these events, we help disseminate information about small farming issues. One of our focus points is on helping small farmers build a arket for their products. We also work to bridge the gap between farms and the surrounding communities to create a relationship between the two.


Farming offers a lot to local communities. From food, to education, to heritage, to enriching experiences, small farms are a vital component of the region. We strive to get the word out about everything farms have to offer. As people become more aware of their local farms, the bond between them grows and strengthens the entire community.

Historical Preservation

As more and more farms disappear from the region's landscape, part of our mission is to preserve the history that is lost. Our plan includes saving interviews, photographs, equipment, maps and other historical artifacts.


One of the biggest challenges facing local farmers is the disconnect the general public has from our food sources. This lack of knowledge effects everything from consumer choices to political decisions. Therefore, it is increasingly important we work to educate the general public on the importance of local farming.
