Adams County Crop Hop gets you down on the farm

The passport features more than 20 local businesses. More are expected to join as the farm and market trail grows.

Adams County is making it easy for families to visit the farms that surround them, but you’ll need a passport.

Starting May 6, families have been able to download a passport to their mobile phones for an agritourism tour called the Adams County Crop Hop.

All it takes is a name and an email address to get a link that opens the passport, which users can access at any time. You can read it here.

The passport features more than 20 local businesses. More are expected to join as the farm and market trail grows.

“The Adams County Crop Hop will tie many of the hands-on and immersive experiences that we have at our various farms and markets into one agritourism experience for locals and visitors alike,” said Karl Pietrzak, president of Destination Gettysburg, which launched the crop hop.

“We are very excited to launch the Adams County Crop Hop and add even more agritourism experiences to get our visitors out into the scenic Adams County countryside,” he said.

Destination Gettysburg was awarded a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture to help it promote agritourism in Adams County.

“Our quality of life in Adams County is enhanced beyond measure by agriculture,” Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding said.

“Our farm markets, nurseries, orchards, stables and farms represent not just fun places to spend an afternoon, but the value of the wide-open green spaces that feed our senses and our economy. Destination Gettysburg’s Crop Hop will be a great way to support the agriculture businesses that represent our proud past, our prosperous present and our promising future.”
