Cumberland County Third Grader Named PA Farm Show Detectives Grand Prize Winner

Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary, Turkey Hill Host Ice Cream Celebration Party

Enola, Pa. – A Cumberland County third grader today received an ice cream party for her school after winning the grand prize in the 2014 Pennsylvania Farm Show Detectives program.

Agriculture Secretary George Greig honored Kate Berra, daughter of Nick and Melanie Berra of Enola, with frozen treats for the entire Shaull Elementary School. Farm Show Detectives program sponsor Turkey Hill hosted the party.

“The Farm Show Detectives program is a fun, interactive way for kids to learn about Pennsylvania’s agriculture industry during the Farm Show,” said Greig. “I thank Turkey Hill for its generosity in supporting a program that teaches the next generation about our state’s number one industry.” 

Berra will also receive a year’s supply of Turkey Hill ice cream as part of her winnings – 52 coupons for any 1.5 quarts of ice cream.

As part of the Farm Show Detectives program, Berra used a map to guide her through 27 interactive learning stations at the 2014 Pennsylvania Farm Show, held Jan. 4-11.

Each station offered a hands-on educational experience, from milking a cow and learning how sap becomes maple syrup to measuring height in horse hands. More than 10,000 young detectives participated in the program.

The 2015 Pennsylvania Farm Show is set for Jan. 10-17. The largest indoor agricultural event in the nation, the Farm Show attracts more than 500,000 visitors and features 6,000 animals, 10,000 competitive exhibits and 300 commercial exhibitors.
