YAP picnicPA Young Ag Professionals Summer Picnic

Near the end of July, a retiring PA YAP Committee member hosts the State YAP Annual Picnic. The picnic, more casual than the leadership conference, is meant to give busy farmers a break from their summer work for food, fun and fellowship with other farmers. The picnic often offers farm tours, industry tours, kids’ activities, and a plethora of delicious “picnic” food!
