Agriculture is essential to Pennsylvania – to our economy, our rural and urban communities, our history, and our future. Farm work is tough, with long hours and extreme conditions. During the coronavirus pandemic, this work only picked up as farmers and ranchers were deemed essential to ensure the U.S. food supply chain wouldn’t collapse. Even though going to work meant significant risks to their health, farmers and farm workers showed up each day to support their families and sustain our food supply.
