Join Our Beginning Farmer Listserv

The Virginia Beginning Farmer and Rancher Coalition Project has established a beginning farmer listserv. The Beginning Farmer Listserv will act as a communication network for farmers, ranchers, educators, and service providers in Virginia.  Posts from the Beginning Farmer listserv may include:

  • Resources aimed at beginning farmers and ranchers.
  • Events and programs directed towards beginning farmers and ranchers
  • Job/apprenticeship/mentoring opportunities for beginning farmers and ranchers
  • Virginia Beginning Farmer and Rancher Coalition Program updates

How to Post to the Listserv

You may post to the listserv by formatting your message the way you would like it to be received, sending it in an email to vabeginningfarmer@vt.edu, and asking that your message be posted to the Beginning Farmer listserv.
