The state Department of Agriculture has unveiled a new PA Preferred brand website to support the increased demand for a direct connection between farmers and consumers. The new website, papreferred.com, offers Pennsylvanians the opportunity to search for PA Preferred members and their products based on location and provides a way for PA Preferred members to connect with customers and other PA Preferred businesses. An events calendar will be added soon.
“Major global events, including the pandemic and conflict in Ukraine, have made Pennsylvanians intimately more aware of where their food comes from,” said Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding. “Buying products with the blue and yellow PA Preferred checkmark means one simple thing – you’re supporting Pennsylvania farmers and producers and keeping your dollars right here at home. You can be confident that what you’re buying is grown, harvested, or produced in Pennsylvania.”
