Report: Fewer Farms in Virginia


Lynchburg, VA - The latest numbers show there were fewer farms in Virginia last year compared to 2011, but experts say that's typical.

According to the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation, Virginia had 200 fewer farms, but that's part of the up-and-down nature of agriculture.

Virginia has more than 46,000 farms, but only about one-tenth of them are considered full-time operations.
