The farmlands of Pennsylvania Dutch Country boast some of the richest and most productive agricultural soils in the world. Lancaster County's farmland and the industry it supports provide more than 50,000 jobs and contribute more than $4 billion to the local economy each year. Dairy farming is the leading agricultural business, but the area is an excellent example of a well diversified farm economy that is not dependent on any one area for its success. Poultry, beef, crop and vegetable production all contribute to the area's economic strength.
Lancaster farms are struggling with increasing development pressures and the county is losing about 1,000 acres of farmland per year. Lancaster County's nearly 6,000 farms provide fresh, local food for residents and people across the United States. They also protect watersheds, recharge groundwater, improve air quality and provide food and cover for wildlife.
