Support PCO in Centre Gives May 5 & 6!
PCO is taking part in 2015 CentreGives, a 36-hour online giving event designed to recognize and support the positive work of local nonprofits in Centre County! CentreGives runs from Tuesday, May 5th at 6:00 a.m. through Wednesday, May 6th at 6:00 p.m. Click this link on May 5-6 to donate to PCO.

As a non-profit, PCO relies on your support to provide the resources farmers and consumers need to make healthy, environmentally conscious choices about agriculture and food. Our programs educate and inspire farmers, food producers and consumers to live in a more organic, natural way, from adopting organic farming practices to choosing organic foods for their families. 
 
When you support PCO, you directly help farmers learn to farm in harmony with nature. Your donation maximizes our effect as we strive to educate the public on the benefits of consuming organic foods, and farmers as they transition toward organic, regenerative, and ecologically based agriculture.
 
Thank you so much, in advance, for all you do to help support and grow PCO and our programs.
Thanks to our E-news Sponsors!

FARM FOR SALE
69 acre certified organic grass fed beef farm. Owners are looking for someone to pick up the soul of this farm and improve on it as only a younger person/s can do.
Included is a 23.5 KW Solar system, a full line of farm machinery, and a closed herd (for 20 years) of 55 beef cattle that have been acclimated,  bred, and thrive on this farm. Third party certifications on this farm are PCO, AWA and AGA. A five bedroom brick/frame house, barn and out buildings are situated on this Central Pennsylvania Conservancy preserved farm. Owner financing as well as mentoring can be negotiated, so that this farm can continue to provide nourishing food to a growing group of loyal customers.
