The speakers are:
- Don Cairns, Cairns Family Farm

- Suzanna Angstadt; Chester County 4-H Teen Council and Windy Hollow 4-H Horse Club
“The Taste of the Farm event really is something special, not just for our chamber but for our entire region,” said sponsor Jonathan Wright of The Wright Agency. “When you look at all the other events we do, they often look similar to events other neighboring chambers do. Nothing wrong with that – that is what chambers are for – but most of them are a bit planned and predictable.
“The Taste of the Farm event is something completely unique to the Western Chester County Chamber and the western side of our county. As we all know, Chester County in general is a very special place to live and work. Usually No. 1 in the state for many notable categories, we are a blend of business, family, culture, and country. The country aspect to me is what sets our WCCCC apart from the rest. This event is a showcase of that and the world that surrounds our farming and agriculture. As the great-grandson of a farmer and whose insurance business got its start insuring the farmers of Chester County many years ago, this is special to me on many levels. But as a chamber member and a board member, I think it might be the coolest event on the calendar that keeps growing bigger every year!”
The WCCCC invites the agricultural community to exhibit and sell its products. There is no charge to exhibit, and the chamber provides the tables. To register to sell locally grown items, call the chamber at 610-384-9550 or email Donna@WesternChesterCounty.com.
