The Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association, one of the state’s leading advocates for dairy farmers, presents a new twist on one of America’s popular comfort foods at the 2020 PA Farm Show, the largest indoor agricultural exhibition in the country. Attendees can enjoy the New Grilled Cheese Stix with an optional side of marinara, at the PA Dairymen’s food booth. Try the tasty new Grilled Cheese Stix, featuring delicious mozzarella cheese sandwiched between another one of PA’s favorites, Martin’s Potato Bread. Then, tweet about your yummy experience – #GrilledCheeseStix.
Add to that delight one of the Food Court’s most popular items, those legen-DAIRY milkshakes, served in three great flavors, vanilla, chocolate or a mix. With popular acclaim, the Dairymen also offer the delicious golden-fried mozzarella cheese cubes served with marinara, a traditional grilled cheese sandwich, ice cream or ice cream sundaes and fresh, local PA white and chocolate milk.
The sale of these in-demand PA Farm Show dairy treats allows the PA Dairymen’s to support year-round philanthropic efforts. Over the past three years, they have donated more than $1.4 million to programs including The Calving Corner; agricultural and educational projects; initiatives and scholarships; the Fill A Glass with Hope® fresh milk campaign for neighbors in need; the Choose PA Dairy consumer education and awareness campaign; the PA Farm Bureau Mobile Ag Education Lab that travels to schools; the PA Dairy Princess and Promotion Program and more!
