The 2019 Franklin Fall Farm Fun Fest was hosted by the Beidel Family in Shippensburg, PA. It took place on September 28, 2019.

 

 

In 1988, Wayne and Bradley took over the dairy from their father, Roy Beidel. Along with their wives, Loudenis and Susan, they formed Beidel Brothers. Since that time, the dairy has grown to 180 mature cows with a total of 370 head including young stock. They employ one full time and two part time workers.

 

They farm 500 acres of both owned and rented land concentrating on feed crops for the herd along with some cash crops.

 

The brothers have continued to make improvements with new and innovative practices. These include computerization of the milking system, the use of solar energy, and minimum and no tillage practices. They have strived to become better stewards of the soil, leave a smaller energy footprint, become more efficient in growing their crops and be more environmentally friendly.

 

The Beidel Family welcomes you to the 29th Annual Franklin Fall Farm Fun Fest. They will be happy to answer any questions, you may have. They hope to see you there.
