Agriculture

Franklin County and agribusiness go hand-in-hand; there are more than 242,000 acres of farmed land in the area. The majority are family operations producing meat, eggs, dairy and vegetables. Because of their hard work and dedication, the county ranks second in Pennsylvania in total cropland, milk production, cattle, melons and corn for silage.
Farm-fresh produce, baked goods and meat are readily available to residents thanks to the 1,600+ family farms. Popular grocers like The Butcher Shoppe, The Market at Trickling Springs, BJ’s, Windy Knoll Farmers Market and Giant carry items directly from local farmers. Don’t forget to stop at Shatzer’s Fruit Market along Route 30 for Chamberburg peaches, home-made apple cider and more!
