Farm Finance and Conservation Planning Seminar

Hosted by the Virginia Secretary of Agriculture and Forestry

One of the top priorities of Governor Youngkin is to help the next generation of agricultural producers find success. Access to financing is one of the most challenging barriers beginning farmers face. In order to address this issue, Virginia Secretary of Agriculture and Forestry Matt Lohr has partnered with key lending institutions and state and federal agencies to host an educational workshop. The Farm Financing and Conservation Planning Seminar will provide resources helping producers explore their options. The seminar will also incorporate a conservation component since cost share funding is at an all-time high. 

Please join this FREE networking opportunity for beginning farmers to learn about farm financing and cost share conservation opportunities. The seminar is being held on two different dates and in two locations.
