Farmers

Farming is a critical component of Lancaster’s heritage and culture. Farmers are tasked with feeding the population while also taking steps to minimize their impact on the environment. This makes them caretakers of both the people and the land. Farmers who strive to minimize their impact on the environment help ensure that their farm, lifestyle and heritage are sustained into the future.
