Agriculture

Potter County is called ‘The Rooftop of Pennsylvania’ because of its elevation and three watersheds (Allegheny, Genesee, Susquehanna).  The county lies in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 5A & 5B making the growing season favorable to cool season vegetables, pasture & hay, small grains, livestock, dairy, and forestry products.

Conservation Districts nationwide are rooted in agriculture. The Potter County Conservation District strives to be a technical assistance provider to the local farming community. The District offers educational events, plan development services, and funding opportunities to local producers.
