Meet Marty Reed – A True HFC Supporter

Marty Reed was born in Middletown, NY but moved with his family to southern Lancaster County at the age of five. He graduated from Penn State University with a B.S. in Marketing Management in 1969. Shortly thereafter, he began his career in the metals industry, working for the same company throughout his 42-year career.

Marty and his wife, Connie Hannigan, were drawn to Hellam Township by the undeveloped rural atmosphere. They became involved in the Smart Growth Movement and in an attempt to keep the township rural, Marty then ran for supervisor in the township. He won in 2001 and is still serving in that capacity.

Marty‘s interests have always involved the outdoors with hiking, backpacking, gardening and travel. His involvement in Horn Farm Center began with his membership on the Township Board of Supervisors. Then when he retired, he fulfilled his promise to offer hands-on support to Horn Farm Center as a Board Member and chair of the Finance Committee.

Marty firmly believes in the sustainable/organic food movement and healthy diets. Horn Farm Center for Agricultural Education can count on him to be totally committed to their mission statement!
