Stu­dents and busi­nesses across Cen­tre County have par­tic­i­pated in the 103rd an­nual Penn­syl­va­nia Farm Show, and some brought back hard­ware to show for it.

The Farm Show, which is the largest indoor agri­cul­tural event in the coun­try, started Jan. 5 and will end Saturday.

For over 100 years, the event has drawn peo­ple from across the state and the coun­try to Har­ris­burg to come and see what the agri­cul­tural in­dus­try has to of­fer.

Many ex­hibits are avail­able for just about any­one to sign up and com­pete in from all walks of the in­dus­try, from an­i­mals, spir­its, food and even square danc­ing.

Be­low are some of the lo­cal par­tic­i­pants who have been rec­og­nized at the Farm Show.

Seven Moun­tains Wine Cel­lars, Spring Mills: Nine of their spir­its placed in the top three, in­clud­ing their 2017 Vi­dal ice wine tak­ing home dou­ble gold and win­ning best of show in the dessert wine cat­e­gory. The win­ery also re­ceived the PA Gov­er­nors Cup award.

Mount Nit­tany Vine­yard & Win­ery, Cen­tre Hall: Took medals with five of their spir­its, in­clud­ing their 2017 Caber­net Franc tak­ing home gold.

Good In­tent Cider, Belle­fonte: Placed in two cat­e­gories in the Cider Com­pe­ti­tion on Jan. 5, fin­ish­ing se­cond in Hopped Class for their Hop Tide, and third in Her­itage Cider class for their Wick­son.

This is the cidery’s first year par­tic­i­pat­ing in a statewide com­pe­ti­tion.

“We are hon­ored to have had two of our ciders rec­og­nized at the PA State Farm Show and are proud to a be part of all the ex­cel­lent craft bev­er­ages that Cen­tre County has to of­fer,” Adam Red­ding, owner of Good In­tent Cider, said in a news re­lease.

Bald Ea­gle Area High School: Student Ash­ton Ju­lian won most cre­ative hor­ti­cul­ture ex­hibit in show, beat­ing out more than 500 other en­tries.

Ad­di­tional stu­dents who placed in the agri­cul­tural education hor­ti­cul­ture in­clude Ju­dah Eveleth, Blaine Egan, Drew Koleno, Colton Rigg and Kylie Swartz.

Ju­lian was hon­ored with best of breed youth Dutch rab­bit, while Re­becca Dean re­ceived best op­po­site of breed Cal­i­for­nia rab­bit.

Emily Trigg and Kyle Spicer each re­ceived best of va­ri­ety for their en­trants in the rab­bit de­part­ment, while Mar­garet Noll, Sa­man­tha Trigg and Macey Hahn all placed in the top two of their re­spec­tive cat­e­gories.

Cen­tral Penn­syl­va­nia In­sti­tute of Sci­ence and Tech­nol­ogy: Stu­dents placed 17th and 25th in agri­cul­ture education demon­stra­tions, ac­cord­ing to re­sults from the Farm Show.
