Farmer Rockstar #FB041

Sam Zimmerman

The Zimmerman farm has been family owned and operated for five generations. The farm lies in the rolling hills of the Pitman valley in Schuylkill County, PA. There are currently six family members that work the 1,000-acre farm. The family farm tries to stay very diverse so they can stand the test time. The farm consists of four poultry houses and 600 head of cattle, 400 of which are on pasture. In addition to the animals, several crops are grown such as corn, soybeans, small grains, potatoes, sweet corn, tomatoes, peppers, strawberries, apples, and peaches.
