«We accept this honor on behalf of the other 999 farms that have
been preserved in Pennsylvania. We are grateful for the many people
who work in the farmland preservation effort. I am also happy my
parents can be here to help observe his. My dad knows the value of
good land as he has taken crops off the land for many years. They are
both as glad as I am to have the farm preserved. Welcome to our
farm. We look forward to when the next I,ooofarms are preserved
and we hope it won’t be too long. "—Gerald Martin accepting the rec
ognition of the I,oooth farm preserved through Pennsylvania's Farm
land Preservation Program.
