We'd like to build an organic farm on the property but have

Your best resource is other organic farmers, and our website
is full of their success stories. Jump onto our New Farm forums
and into conversations with other folks who are making it
happen. Talk to your neighbors; find out where the farmers’
markets are in your area and introduce yourself to other organic

And go to a meeting: You will not want to miss the Virginia
Association for Biological Farming www.vabf.org
