The House of Representatives today approved legislation authored by Rep. Barb Gleim (R-Cumberland) that would create a statewide standard allowing farmers to host Agritourism or Agritainment activities on their farms.

“Today is a great day for family farms in Pennsylvania, and I want to thank the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau, Pennsylvania State Grange, the PA Dairy Future Commission and many, many others who helped me get this passed in the House,” Gleim said. “Many farmers in Pennsylvania are turning to agritourism to augment their income as they continue to raise traditional crops, which in turn helps them remain economically viable and bolster future generations on the farm.”
