The Virginia Beginning Farmer and Rancher Coalition Project has established a beginning farmer blog; Virginia Beginning Farmer Connections.
Virignia Beginning Farmer Connections is intended to be a message board for topics that pertain to beginning farmers and ranchers in Virginia.
“Connections” is broken down into 4 categories; General, Equipment/Farm Related Sales, Farmer/Mentoring/Internship Opportunities, and Land.
Virginia Beginning Farmer Connections can serve as an active communication network for farmers, ranchers, educators, and service providers. We encourage you to post comments, but ask that all posts are appropriate for Virginia Beginning Farmer Connections. Topics can include, but not be limited to:
- Questions that relate to farming needs.
- Resources aimed at beginning farmers and ranchers.
- Events and programs directed towards beginning farmers and ranchers.
- Farming/Mentoring Opportunities
- “Marketplace”/Classified Listing
