In this third part of our on-going series about the Farm Bill, we go to the farmers. Considering Pennsylvania has very little commodity farming, this legislation impacts our region in some unique ways. Ben Wenk, a seventh generation farmer, talks about some important block grants while Phillip Smelz gets down to earth about the realities of a small farmer following the bill. And, on the lighter side, find out what Green Meadows farmer Ian Brendle thinks will be the new “IT” vegetable.
