Did You Know.....?

DID YOU KNOW.....
  • Virginia has lost over 45,000 of farm and forest land annually to development and land since 1987, and that figure is increasing each year
DID YOU KNOW.....
  • It requires 0.2 to 1.2 acres of farmland per person to support a typical American diet
DID YOU KNOW.....
  • 54% of Virginia farms report a net loss of income
DID YOU KNOW.....
  • If each household in the 11-county Shenandoah Valley region of Virginia spent $10 per week on locally produced foods and farm products, it would generate $113.2 million annual dollars of direct economic investment to our region's economy, farms, and communities!
I wonder what the statistics would be for your area?

Wow, ten dollars a week isn't much for such great results!
