Virginia farmers to meet at annual convention

HOT SPRINGS, Va. (AP) — Farmers from across Virginia are planning to gather for educational workshops and updates on federal farm policy during an annual convention.

The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation’s convention will be held Nov. 27-29 in Hot Springs.

“Driving Agricultural Forward” is the theme of this year’s convention.

Participants will hear keynote remarks from best-selling author Michele Payn. Her latest book, “Food Truths from Farm to Table,” features interviews with U.S. farmers who dispel common misconceptions about agriculture.

American Farm Bureau Federation Vice President Scott VanderWal will share updates on federal farm policy.

Educational workshops will focus on the state cattle checkoff, direct marketing, local issues and building relationships with elected officials.
