Advisory Committees

Agriculture in Virginia is an increasingly diverse industry, with dynamic changes occurring locally, regionally, statewide, nationally and internationally. Virginia farmers need a voice and a forum to surface issues that impact their ability to compete in the fast-changing world of production agriculture.

Research & Resources

Virginia Farm Bureau also studies key issues affecting the economic sustainability of agricultural sectors across the Commonwealth. We keep farmers updated regularly on trends and opportunities through our Merchandiser Minute and CattlePulse podcasts and online resources such as the Virginia Commodity Marketing website.
