In 2002, a small group of passionate deer enthusiasts met to form an association known as the Pennsylvania Deer Farmers Association or PDFA. The mission was clear, to “Preserve, Protect and Promote” the opportunity to ethically raise and manage private cervid operations in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Since that time PDFA has nurtured a strong relationship with the PA Department of Agriculture ensuring this opportunity for anyone to raise and privately own cervid species in the state.
PDFA’s collective voice has helped shape our leading roll as one of the best places to raise and own cervid species in the country. We look forward to a prosperous future with the animals we so care for.
