YORK – PA Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding and PA Adjutant General Anthony Carrelli toured U.S. Navy Veteran James Cornwell’s Nine Pines Farm in York, and U.S. Marine Corps Veteran Daniel Hubbard’s Hubbard Family Ranch in Gardners, Adams County, to highlight state support of veterans and urge consumer support for veteran-owned farms. Secretary Redding says both farms received grants in September through the state’s $10 million Fresh Food Financing Initiative COVID-19 Relief Fund to expand access to fresh food in low-income communities during the pandemic. The tour was hosted by the PA Veteran Farming Project, which connects military veterans to programs and resources, including those available through the state. One example is the PA Preferred Homegrown by Heroes Program, which helps consumers easily identify and purchase products made and grown by Pennsylvania veterans.
