Franklin Fall Farm Fun Fest

Hazel Seiders of Grace B Luhrs Elementary School visits with the cows at Two-Top Holsteins Farm in Mercersburg during last year’s Franklin Fall Farm Fun Fest. This year’s event will be held Saturday at Hollow Acres Farm in Pleasant Hall.

The 32nd Franklin Fall Farm Fun Fest will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24, at Hollow Acres Farm, 6867 Upper Strasburg Road, Pleasant Hall.

The event is a project of the Franklin County Farm Bureau. Parking and admission are free. Free milk and ice cream will be served. Lunch is available for purchase from a stand operated by the FFA.

Saturday’s event features family fun and education, including taking a farm wagon tour and milking a cow by hand.

Hollow Acres Farm is one of 425 dairy operations in Franklin County. Owned and operated by Ron and Amy Wenger, the family is the third generation to farm at the current location. Along with sons Gavin and Colin, Ron and Amy rely on a solid staff of employees to raise crops on 1,000 acres and care for their 280 dairy cows and young stock. In addition to building on the agricultural legacy, Hollow Acres runs on always striving for efficiency through technology and best management practices when working with both the animals and the farmland.
