Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding announces the theme for the 107th Pennsylvania Farm Show: Rooted in Progress. The event will run from Saturday, January 7 through Saturday, January 14, 2023 at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg.

The 2023 Farm Show theme, Rooted in Progress, was chosen to honor the deep roots of agriculture in Pennsylvania’s heritage, as well as the significant updates and pivots farmers and their families have made, and continue to make, to grow and adapt as markets, consumers, climate, and resources change.

The 2023 Pennsylvania Farm Show will feature fan-favorites like the 1,000-pound butter sculpture, famous Farm Show Food Court, bunny-hopping and sheep-shearing competitions (among hundreds of other competitive agricultural events), cooking demonstrations at the PA Preferred® Culinary Connection, and more than one million square-feet of hands-on agriculture education opportunities and chances to engage with the people who power Pennsylvania’s $132.5 billion agriculture industry.
