Join Greener Partners and the Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA) on Saturday, November 5th for The World’s Greatest Farmer Showdown, a unique, family-friendly event to celebrate local farmers.

Set on the beautiful, 90-acre Longview Center for Agriculture (formerly Willow Creek Orchards) will feature teams from area farms vying for prizes and glory in contests such as the Pumpkin Shot Put, Wheel Barrow Obstacle Course and Chicken Catching!

There will be live music, kiddie crafts and delicious farm-fresh food and drink from vendors including Standard Tap and Victory Brewing Company.
