What is Bountiful Berks™?
B.A.R.N. kicked off a local food logo called Bountiful Berks™ in July 2010 at Redner’s Market, Leesport. County Commissioners Mark Scott and Kevin Barnhardt, both B.A.R.N. members, showed their support. A growing number of partners are using this logo, created by Berks Career and Technology Center student Nathaniel Renninger to promote locally grown or processed foods. Eligible B.A.R.N. members can be licensed to use this promotion tool at no extra cost. While there may not be gold at the end of the rainbow, the electric power pool that B.A.R.N. members signed up for in December 2010 generated more than $8,500 in annual electric costs for small commercial farm customers in the Met-Ed service area during the first month of 2011. Savings are also available for PPL and other electric utility company customers who are members
