Future Farmers of America is a co-curricular organization for students in Agriculture, Horticulture, and Natural Resources classes dedicated to inspiring and encouraging a new generation of farmers. https://www.ffa.org/Pages/default.aspx 4-H is a voluntary, informal education program that allows kids to explore agriculture through guided projects. The projects are hands-on and teach kids to become invested in their own communities. http://offices.ext.vt.edu/fauquier/programs/4h/index.html PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS FOR AGRICULTURE PROGRAMS The Department of Agricultural Development promotes the agriculture industry within Fauquier County, to increase the economic viability of farming and to advise the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors on matters affecting the agricultural economy and its development. The recommendation to hire a “Food Distribution Coordinator” and a “Farming Networks Coordinator” would be housed in this Department. It is also the agency best poised to disseminate the recent research on how pick-your-owns can tap into ethic markets. http://www.fauquiercounty.gov/government/departments/agdev/ Fauquier County Virginia Cooperate Extension Agents connect local farmers to the latest research, educational demonstrations and grants. They provide education through programs in Agriculture and Natural Resources, Family and Consumer Sciences, 4-H Youth Development, and Community Viability. http://offices.ext.vt.edu/fauquier/ The Fauquier Tourism Board helps to attract visitors and promote Fauquier’s recreational opportunities. It is instrumental in advertising Agritourism as an exciting attraction. http://www.fauquiertourism.com/ Farmlink is an online resource that links young emerging farmers with those who are considering retiring in the next 15 years. The young farmers can benefit from the expertise, equipment, and land that may otherwise have been sold off, making the transition to farming much easier. Older farmers benefit from knowing that their farms will remain in its original use and in the hands of someone that they personally mentored. http://www.farmlink.net/en/about-farmlink/ 55
