Friends, family and the local community were invited to the barn for an open house and meal to celebrate the addition to their farm. Tours were offered, and a delicious meal prepared by The Maschhoffs was provided.

During the ribbon cutting, Doug Harter said, “We are proud to announce the expansion of our farm. We work together as a family with care and compassion to provide the best-quality pork to help feed the world.”
