US (PA) Bellefonte farm celebrated opening with Happy Valley Agventures

The owners of Bellefonte cut flower farm Christie and Mark Holloway celebrated the grand opening of their cut flower farm with a ribbon-cutting at noon on Saturday, May 14, during their Spring Market event, which featured food and beverage vendors, family activities, and photo opportunities. More than 40 local artisans sell locally produced and hand-crafted products.

Since 2019, Rooted Farmstead has been a member of Happy Valley Agventures, which promotes local farms and agriculture-related businesses and helps them connect with the public. Happy Valley Agventures is a collaboration between the Chamber of Business and Industry of Centre County and Happy Valley Adventure Bureau. “Christie has a great vision for the farm,” said Lesley Kistner, the director of public affairs at Happy Valley Adventure Bureau. “She started five or six years ago with herbs, then changed to a cut flower business. They also restored an 1865 barn.

Kistner said the Holloways will host annual spring and fall markets with vendors and offer activities like their Sip and Snip Workshops that include flowers and a choice of beverages.

To qualify, businesses must be agriculturally focused, open to the public in some capacity, offer an agriculture-related experience, or sell a product that is locally produced, grown, or raised. They need to demonstrate significant interest in the development of agritourism and ag-related products that offer a visitor experience in Center County.
