From Timeless in Bedford County Magazine No. 2
Josh Lang is used to wearing his suit and tie to business meetings representing Bedford County, but the job often requires field trips, too. Recently, Lang met with the Phero family at their Hospitality Spring Farm in the Dutch Corner area to talk about economic development, local food production, and positive approaches for moving our county forward with our goals.
Nelson and Sarah own 30 acres of fertile farmland in the rolling hills where they grow everything from 15’ high sunflowers to a wide variety of berries, peaches and herbs, and a seemingly endless array of vegetables. They raise pigs, rabbits, goats, chickens, ducks, and geese—and produce pork and beef products, farm-fresh eggs, and hand-made soaps.
In addition to the “edible landscaping” the Pheros have created, Sarah also has a fresh flower arrangement and table linens business.
Nelson has a separate wrap business— expanding by leaps and bounds, and exceeding all expectations. He is committed to products Made in the USA, and is working with Commissioner Lang to see how his companies can have a greater community impact, and how partnering with Bedford County can be a collective benefit. Lang knows this kind of collaboration will help our county reap the rewards of cooperation for everyone.Click Here for More Timeless Articles
