What's new with AgrAbility Virginia?
Fundraising Campaign Kickoff

Today marks the start of AgrAbility Virginia's crowd funding campaign. While our yearly operating costs are funded by USDA-NIFA, funds from this campaign will directly benefit farmers in obtaining assistive technology and tools to aid in their day-to-day operations.

Please consider what amount you can give. No donation is too small. Each gift will assist farmers working to feed our communities. Visit our campaign webpage to donate now. Campaign runs through November 26.
AgriStress Helpline Resource

Our colleagues at AgriSafe have launched a free and confidential helpline designed for farmers and farm families seeking mental health support in Virginia, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Wyoming and Texas. Professionals answer calls and texts 24/7 and have been specifically trained to understand agriculture, forestry and fishing workers. Please share this resource with anyone who may benefit. To find out more, visit the AgriSafe webpage.
