These are usually on the 2nd Sunday of the month from 12-3pm in March, June, September, and December across the Commonwealth of Virginia. We meet in members homes and start with a potluck lunch. Everyone is invited to bring a dish to share. ( Board members are available to come and speak to groups interested in finding out more about VICFA.)
Our next Quarterley Meeting will be in Beaverdam, Va on March 10, 2019, from 12noon to 3pm. Save the date! More details to come.
December 8, 2018 in Afton, Nelson County, VA. The meeting was moved to the Saturday due to the threat of snow! The Board Members met at Rockfish Valley Community Center to tour the facility where we will be having the October 13, 2019 Fundraiser with Joel Salatin as our keynote speaker! Lunch was eaten, business was taken care of and we got home before the snow arrived.
September 9, 2018 in beautiful Southwest Virginia:
The meeting was hosted by the McIntyre family at “Goshen Homestead”, Honaker, VA. Attendees were treated to tours of the new micro dairy he has been developing, and lots of good homemade food.

June 10, 2018 VICFA Annual Membership Meeting:
We were hosted by the Salatin family at “Polyface Farm”, Swoope, VA. The meeting proceeded as usual with a delicious lunch, a review of the year, election of officers, board members and other business, then a tremendous storm appeared from nowhere with thunder, lightning, plus horizontal wind and rain which blew through the windbreak in the pavilion where the meeting was being held! Thanks to Joel, Teresa and Lucille for hosting us, and the brave VICFA members who made it through the most exciting meeting ever!
