The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services encourages you to Buy Local all year long. When you buy from local farmers, you get maximum freshness, taste and nutrition because your food travels far less from farm to table. Explore VirginiaGrown.com to locate farm fresh foods and beverages plus plants, gifts, wool and other non-edible items.
