"Ah, man, he would be so happy. I tell you what, he'd be out there, right now, in the field, working on a new discer or something, trying to find ways to make it even better." I was talking to Joe Gibson, a sixth-generation local farmer, about how his dad might feel about the most recent venture on the Gibson farm - hemp. The life of a farmer isn't an easy one, and he recalled how first it was his grandfather, his father, and himself as a boy, working the fields and caring for the livestock together.

Redevelopment Works - The Gibson Family Farm - Part 3

by Selina Pedi of The Progress News


Betsy Gibson loves to tell the story of how she, a vegetarian from Pittsburgh, fell in love with Joe Gibson, a rural pig farmer. We laugh as we imagine the “Green Acres” scenario, but I’ve always noticed something a little deeper, too: how two people who sometimes seem to have very different views and preferences have, in fact, very similar values and life goals. Joe and Betsy both care deeply about the well-being of others and their impact on the world around them, though they have different ways of expressing it."



by Deanna Tomaselli

CBD seems to be everywhere these days. I’ve never used it until recently, when I tried a new salve from Penn’s Choice.

I love sharing about family-owned businesses. So I was excited when Penn’s Choice reached out and I learned more about them. The family that owns this company — the Gibsons — have been farming since 1804 through 8 generations, with a 142-acre farm in Western Pennsylvania. When it became legal to grow industrial hemp in PA, they knew that was the future of their farm and their business, and Penn’s Choice was born!
