Farm Show to Showcase How Agriculture Is 'Keeping Pennsylvania Growing'

Last update: 10:32 a.m. EST Dec. 10, 2008

HARRISBURG, Pa., Dec 10, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire via COMTEX/ -- The 2009 Pennsylvania Farm Show promises to offer something to interest each of its anticipated 400,000 visitors -- from milkshakes to tractors to alpacas, said Agriculture Secretary Dennis Wolff today as he announced that the 93rd show is set for Jan. 10-17 at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex & Expo Center in Harrisburg.
"Pennsylvania agriculture is innovative and diverse, and the Farm Show provides the perfect venue to share what's new in our state's number one industry," said Wolff. "Visitors will be treated to the best in animal agriculture, cooking and baking, and alternative energy options."
The 2009 Farm Show's theme - Keeping Pennsylvania Growing - shows how the agriculture industry is incorporating cutting edge technologies and the many ways agribusinesses are infusing our economy with jobs and capital investments while contributing to a safe food supply. The show will also highlight how agriculture is increasingly generating more renewable energy that is helping to reduce the state's dependence on foreign oil.
During the eight-day event, visitors have the chance to see nearly 6,000 animals, 10,000 competitive exhibits and 270 commercial exhibitors. In addition, exhibitors can hope to tap into more than $550,000 in prize money.

Additional highlights of the week include:

-- Culinary Connection - Back for the third year is celebrity chef Chris
Cognac, "The Hungry Detective" on the Food Network. Three
other famous chefs will join him including Richard Blais of Bravo
TV's "Top Chef" and "Iron Chef America," Louisa
Chu of Bravo TV's "Iron Chef America," and PBS's
"Gourmet's Diary of a Foodie," and Howard Helmer, the
"World's Fastest Omelet Maker." Also, four winning
regional chefs and last year's overall winner will vie for the PA
Preferred Best Chef in Pennsylvania title.


-- Farm Show Detectives - Kids can become "Farm Show Detectives"
and investigate Pennsylvania agriculture by visiting 19 learning
stations located throughout the complex.


-- Celebrity Milking Contest - Secretary Wolff and Rep. Art Hershey are
ready for a rematch in the milking contest. Players from
Harrisburg's new professional indoor football team, the Harrisburg
Stampede, local TV personalities, and other state legislators will
round out the teams.


-- Energy Exhibits - More than 25 Pennsylvania energy companies will
show how the state is leading the nation in renewable energy
through wind and solar energy, biodiesel, ethanol, and corn- and
wood-burning stoves and furnaces. A mobile anaerobic digester
demonstration will show how animal waste can be converted into
alternative energy.


-- New Attractions - New this year are American Mustang
demonstrations,
antique tractor pulls and a Farm Show talent contest. Also, for the
first time, Red & White dairy cattle will have a separate show
during the dairy show.


-- Farm Show Classics - Crowd-pleasing favorites like the butter
sculpture,
Sheep-to-Shawl competition and the high school rodeo will return.


-- Food Court - As always, the famed food court will offer something for
every food enthusiast, including Pennsylvania mushrooms,
milkshakes,
potatoes, beef and chicken.


Secretary Wolff invited the public to help kick off one of the most celebrated agricultural events in the nation by attending the annual Farm Show Dinner on Friday, Jan. 9. Live entertainment will be provided by KJ Wagner. Tickets are $40 and seating is limited.
The Pennsylvania Farm Show runs Jan. 10-17 from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Admission is free. Parking is $8. Visit www.farmshow.state.pa.us for a detailed schedule or to make reservations for the opening dinner.

It was a good time last year, but we barely scratched the surface.
This time I want to spend more time there, especially with the animals.

A bit of a hike from Philly, but perhaps a roadtrip would be fun.

That may or may not be a problem, the Farm Show is in Harrisburg. :wink:
It's like a State Fair, in the middle of winter, all inside a huge complex.
Our friend, Chris Cognac, The Hungry Detective will be doing a cooking
demo again. 8) We haven't heard from him in a while. :?

It all depends on the day that folks want to meet. I could probably do it on the 17th, but earlier than that, we're finishing up with inventory.

That's barely more than a hop, skip, and a jump from here. I would love to go! Once a date is decided, I will make sure to take off of work.

Last year we went the day that Chris did his demo.
He's on the schedule both of the first 2 days (Jan 10-11).
Last time,


Kinsley wrote:Chris committed culinary chaos: It was a "blind demo".
He had an hour to cook something, with 5 assistants
including the PA Secretary of Agriculture,
but no previous knowledge of what ingredients
he'd have to work with.

They gave him a whole pheasant, a chunk of Emu and
a small array of fruits, veggies, condiments and fungi.
Half way thru, they added a couple of duck breasts.
He finished 5 or six dishes, it was hard to be sure.

This time, it looks like he'll be more prepared. On Saturday the 10th

the schedule wrote:Chris Cognac... with Special Guest Major General Jessica L. Wright.
Cuban Pork

For Sunday the 11th

the schedule wrote:Richard Blais, Chef... and Chris Cognac
Mushroom Ice Cream with Chips and Chives

:?

No times are mentioned, but if the demos are in the order listed
he's 3rd on Saturday and 2nd on Sunday.

I may get a hotel room and go both days. There's easily 2 days worth of
stuff to see and do.

So the 10th? That's about a 1 1/2 - 2 hour drive, which is nothing. About what time would Chris' and Richard's demos start?

I posted everything I could find. That sounds like a question for Vickatina.
She can find almost anything. Party Flavor could probably find it too,
but we don't hear from him much any more.

Looks like Saturday is a go for me!

Last year I had brought the mini-vicks with me, and I arrived earlier in the day, so we could walk around a bit before the demo. I think last year we met about an hour before Chris's demo so we could navigate through the crowd, to the stage.

We met at the "Butter Sculpture" :wink:

We should recheck this, I followed the link from "Culinary Connections", to
schedules, and it still showed Chris and Richard Blais working together on
"Mushroom Ice Cream with Chips and Chives"

11 at the butter sculpture sounds good.

It'll be a different sculpture this year, but you're looking for a big glass
box with tons of butter inside.* :shock: Last year it was just inside a door.
The one we should have come in. :lol: This year we have time to
get maps and plan our approach strategy a little better.

Are we getting together for dinner on Saturday?
Who's staying over?
Is it too late to try to get reservations together?

I just checked the schedule of events, just to be sure, and the demo times have changed a bit.

It is now:

1:00 PM Chris Cognac, Host of Food Network's "The Hungry Detective," Participant in Alton Brown's"Feasting on Asphalt," Judge on "Iron Chef America" and Food and Wine Writer for The Daily
Breeze in LA with Special Guest Major General Jessica L. Wright:
Cuban Pork


3:00 PM Richard Blais - Chef, Culinary Designer, Bravo! "Top Chef" and "Iron Chef America" Contestant: Pork Belly with Rye Bread, Whiskey and Pear

4:00 PM Louisa Chu - Chef, "Iron Chef America" Judge, "Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations" Fixer, "Gourmet's Diary of a Foodie" Foodie on PBS: Crispy "Roasted Pork Sandwich"


So, do we still want to meet at 11 and walk around together? or change our meeting time to 12 to give travelers more time to get there?

Either option works for me.

Dinner afterwards is ok too, like we did last year.

We can't make it now. With my hospital stay, family holiday plans went off track, and ended up rescheduled for the 10th. I hope you all have a great time!
