We hold quartly meetings across the Commonwealth of Virginia
at the homes of various members.

Everyone is invited to bring a dish to share.  We enjoy the feast of homemade foods. This is NOT a "meet, eat, and retreat" organization. Instead, VICFA's primary function is to lobby - and thus, we are not shy about doing so. Laws need to be changed in order to protect farmers. People need to be educated as to how their rights have been curtailed. Our meetings serve as an opportunity to explore these conditions and work to devise solutions.

VICFA meetings are normally held on the second Sunday of the month.

VICFA meetings are open to the public. Please bring a dish and your enthusiasm to share.

Upcoming Events

We invite you to join us for our board meeting in March!

We will share in a potluck lunch at 12:00 pm, followed by our general business meeting from 12:00 - 3:00 pm.
VICFA membership meetings are open to the public. Please bring a dish and a big helping of enthusiasm to share. Broaden our reach - invite a friend or neighbor to join you.
