RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia Farm Bureau Federation will hold its 2022 Annual Convention and Annual Meeting of Voting Delegates Nov. 28 through Dec. 1 at The Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.
Speakers will include Matthew Lohr, Virginia Secretary of Agriculture and Forestry; Andrew Walmsley, American Farm Bureau Federation senior director of public affairs; and VFBF President Wayne F.

Participants in the event will recognize recipients of the inaugural Agricultural and Forestry Innovation Challenge and the annual VFBF Young Farmers Achievement Award and Young Farmers Discussion Meet competition.
County Farm Bureau leaders will gather Nov. 30 and Dec.1 for the Annual Meeting of Voting Delegates, which helps shape VFBF state and federal policies for the coming year.
