Chester County Featured Farmer:
Melissa Harrop of Meadow Creek Livestock, LLC
Consumer choice is an important part of our local agriculture industry, as well as the federal regulations that ensure the safety of our farm products. Melissa Harrop encourages people to have real conversations with their farmers about how they grow and why, instead of relying entirely on what they may find online.
Melissa is a proud U.S. Army veteran and parent of three including the reigning 2019 Chester County Little Miss Agriculture USA (Ellie Harrop). She raises dairy steers and heifers on her family's farm in Chester Springs, Pa., and sells beef directly to the public. She and her family also grow feed corn, soybeans and hay.
