Virginia agriculture thrives in the Washington suburbs, on Real Virginia
Featured this month on Real Virginia, Virginia Farm Bureau’s weekly television program:
- During the holiday season, dairies and creameries utilize milk that would otherwise be used for ice cream to produce eggnog.
- The price of purchased food is expected to increase between 11% and 12% against prices in December 2021 due to rising input costs for farmers.
- Stafford County’s agricultural landscape amid the Washington suburbs is featured in this month’s County Agricultural Close-up.
November’s first episode can now be viewed on the Real Virginia YouTube channel. The second episode, which is scheduled to premiere Dec. 15, also will be available on YouTube.
