Kick back, relax and visit six Virginia farms
September 20, 2012
DOSWELL—The Real Virginia Virtual Farm Tour will give Virginians the opportunity to “visit” six different farms from the comfort of their own homes.
On Oct. 3, Virginia Farm Bureau Federation will host an hour-long live event featuring video footage of the farms in the State Fair of Virginia’s Meadow Pavilion from 7 to 8 p.m. The event will be broadcast simultaneously at VaFarmBureau.org.
The virtual farm tours include a Rockbridge County beef cattle business, a Hanover County dairy, an Accomack County vegetable farm, a Shenandoah County poultry operation, a Spotsylvania County produce farm and a Buckingham County pork operation.
Viewers can watch the live feed and submit questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. They also can follow the event on Twitter at #RealVA.
