Trends in Chester County Agriculture
Where have we been and where are we going? Come learn how the 2012 Census of Agriculture data was collected and what the numbers show for Chester County and the surrounding region. Farmers from the dairy and mushroom industries will also give their perspectives on what they’ve seen “on the ground” over the past few years and what challenges and opportunities they anticipate for their commodities in the future.
