Apple season is here! Did you know there used to be thousands of kinds of apples grown in the United States!? While many are lost, you can still find some of these varieties grown today!

In Virginia, most apple production is located in the western counties stretching from Wi******er (Frederick Co.) in the north, to the tier of counties along the North Carolina border. Much acreage is devoted to processing production, especially in the northern counties; elsewhere in the state, fresh production predominates. The five leading varieties are Red Delicious, York, Golden Delicious, Rome and Fuji.

Support Virginia agriculture this fall by looking for #VirginiaGrown apples 🍎🍏🍎

Please join us for a Farm Tour next Saturday 5/29, 9am-12pm!
Part of our mission is to give you opportunities to learn about how your food is raised and opportunities to enjoy the beauty of our farm and happy animals! We want to know you, you to know us, and you to know how we are raising your food!

This is a great opportunity to do that!

Only 40 slots for adults, so this will not be a huge crowd--lots of opportunity to see up close, and hands on, meet all our great staff, and hit us with questions!

Also, only 40 spots, so please get your tickets soon!

You can get those here: https://whiffletreefarmva.com/store/farm-tours

I, Jesse, will be leading the tour. And I will be joined by our awesome staff who lead on their given enterprises--Carmen on the baby chicks, Kathryn and John-Paul on the meat chickens in the pasture, Owen on the laying hens, Ben on the cattle!

Things that we will do and learn about on the tour:
--see the 2000 laying hens, and learn about how we keep them safe, and keep them on fresh pasture. We will get as nerdy as you want on any of the details!

--see and hold the baby chicks in the brooder! Learn about how we mother these little cute puff balls until they are hardy enough to go to pasture!

--see and learn about the meat chickens on pasture, and how we keep them safe, on fresh pasture, and generally happy!

--see and learn about the beef cattle. Getting to watch them move to fresh pasture is a beautiful site! Exploring their cow pies and the grasses to learn about the animals and land!

--If you want to know anything about our business model, we will share!

--You will have time to check out the Farm Store as you like.

--You are welcome to bring a picnic and eat down by the stream! My favorite spot!

I hope you will join us! It will be a lot of fun and very informative, especially with the whole Whiffletree gang there!

And please feel free to ask any of us about how we got into farming or any of those fun stories!

Tickets are $25 per adult. 17 and younger are free.

I hope you will join us!

Virginia FFA

Virginia FFA

Our first farmer we would like to highlight on our Thank a Farmer campaign is Mr. Kraig Smith!

Hello Virginia FFA, my name is Kraig Smith. I am a proud alumni member of the C.L. Payne FFA chapter and the current owner/operator of Nolandia Farm in Catlett, Virginia. Currently I milk around 50 registered Holstein cows. I grow all the feed for the cattle in addition to wheat and soybeans. Growing up, I was very involved in agriculture through my family’s dairy farm, so FFA was a natural fit in high school. I served in multiple officer positions and competed in several CDEs including forestry field day and dairy handlers. My experiences in FFA prepared me for my career by providing me leadership opportunities and hands on agriculture experiences through my supervised agricultural experiences and networking opportunities to interact with other FFA members and industry professionals throughout Virginia. If I could give any advice to FFA members now, I would say to take advantage of all the opportunities given to you. There are so many possibilities in the FFA and your time in this great organization flies by too quickly. You are the future of agriculture and we need young, enthusiastic, individuals in the industry now more than ever. Thank you!

We would like to thank Mr. Smith for meeting with us and for his part in feeding America. Thank you! #thankafarmer

UPDATED to reflect new reporting instructions! https://agr.wa.gov/about-wsda/news-and-media-relations/news-releases?article=31411

Today we received reports of people receiving seeds in the mail from China that they did not order. The seeds are sent in packages usually stating that the contents are jewelry. Unsolicited seeds could be invasive, introduce diseases to local plants, or be harmful to livestock.

Here's what to do if you receive unsolicited seeds from another country:

1) DO NOT plant them and if they are in sealed packaging (as in the photo below) don't open the sealed package.

2) This is known as agricultural smuggling. Report it to USDA. Information in our latest press release on how to report: https://agr.wa.gov/about-wsda/news-and-media-relations/news-releases?article=31411

Good #TakeoverTuesday Morning! I’m Becky Szarzynski from Mountain Glen Farm, and I’m so excited about getting the opportunity to share with everyone a glimpse at what my father and I do at MGF!

My dad, Glenn, and I own and operate Mountain Glen Farm in Rockbridge County. We raise a breed of cattle called South Polls on our 390 acres, using intensive rotational grazing management practices. Our girls thrive on grass/forage only, which allows them to efficiently and optimally graze and utilize our planted summer annuals, native warm-season grasses, and perennial native cool-season pastures. The South Poll breed is known for excelling and finishing on forage only, handling our hot and humid summers and having high fertility and longevity. With the help of South Poll genetics and our regenerative farming mindset, we hope to continue to cultivate and improve our soil health, water quality, animal performance, and our mental, physical, and spiritual health. The health of our farm’s ecosystem is a top priority for us because the wellness of our lands directly support and nourish our families and local communities. #StillFarming

10 Reasons Your Child Should Join FFA or 4-H

It’s hard to imagine growing up on a farm without being in 4-H or FFA. Although there was no FFA in my high school in Ann Arbor, Mich., my siblings and I were active members of 4-H. Both organizations are important.
