GETTYSBURG, PA (March 14, 2016) – A 4th-generation Adams County farmer and livestock producer recently added more than 100 acres of farmland to his family’s agricultural holdings thanks to a low-interest business loan facilitated through the nonprofit Adams County Economic Development Corporation (ACEDC) and funded through a mix of state resources and local bank financing.
Jeff Weikert of Weikert’s Livestock, Fairfield, says the acquisition of a 112-acre Highland Township farm will allow him to grow crops and eventually raise cattle on the property, located along Knoxlyn-Orrtanna Road. All of the cattle currently owned by Weikert’s Livestock graze on Virginia farmland; the purchase will help his family raise their signature beef cattle closer to home.
