Agriculture has long been, and continues to be, a major driver of Pennsylvania’s economy – and its largest industry – providing over $84 billion in direct economic output and supporting over 280,000 jobs. The field of agriculture is diverse and has opportunities everywhere: from growing crops to rearing animals; from organics, sustainability, and farm-to-table, to canning, wine making and wool production.
The Great Allentown Fair Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization chartered in 2019, as a separate subsidiary of the Lehigh County Agricultural Society. The mission of the Great Allentown Fair Foundation is to provide philanthropic opportunities through grants and charitable donations to preserve, enrich, and advance agriculture.
