Website launched for agricultural producers

Farm Credit of the Virginias has launched an educational website,

A component of the newly created Knowledge Center, the site is aimed to be a network agent for all types of farmers, including young, beginning, small, second profession and commercial producers.

The site is a wealth of information, including agriculture news, helpful links, an article repository, a calendar of events, market news and an “Ask the Expert” link to help find answers for specific questions.

The Knowledge Center was created in 2013 as a means of facilitating and sharing knowledge and resources within the community for all farmers. This website is one component of the program aimed to help guide those interested in the agricultural industry.

Matt Lohr, Knowledge Center director, said, “I am very excited to see the launch of our website and look forward to seeing it grow, both in information and interest among the farmers. Our goal is not to simply recreate ideas and knowledge, but to partner with our stakeholders to work in a collaborative spirit that better serves our industry.”

The long term goal of the center is to help inform, educate and serve those interested in farming.

Farm Credit of the Virginias is committed to being a trusted partner for producers throughout its territory. It provides over a billion dollars in financing to more than 9,000 farmers, agribusinesses and rural homeowners throughout Virginia, West Virginia and Maryland.

Farm Credit is a cooperative capitalized largely through investments made by farmers, ranchers and the rural businesses that borrow from them.
