Virginia Prime Farm Land

According to the United States Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, prime farmland abounds in Virginia; the "prime farmland" designation indicates that land has the best combination of physical and chemical characteristics for producing food, feed, forage, fiber, and oilseed crops. Prime farmland also has the combination of essential characteristics needed to produce sustained high yield crops in an economic manner in-line with acceptable farming techniques. These characteristics include:

  • Soil Properties
  • Growing Season
  • Moisture Supply

Farms for sale in Virginia are attractive because they generally meet the characteristics of prime farmland that produce successful crops, including:

  • A reliable water supply from precipitation or irrigation
  • A favorable temperature and growing season
  • An acceptable levels of acidity or alkalinity
  • An acceptable salt or sodium content
  • Very few rocks

Other considerations for prime farmland include rural land use that is no near water areas such as lakes and urban areas. Frequency of flooding and water table drained areas are two additional requirements that designate land use as prime farmland.

The Virginia Agricultural Model

The Commonwealth of Virginia takes land preservation seriously. In fact, the Virginia Agricultural Model was developed to serve as a guide to state and local governments and developers and is intended to map important agricultural areas in Virginia based on suitable lands, prime farmland soils, and historic farm resources. This effort directly combats development pressures so that our natural resources are not lost to development and urbanization.

Virginians realize that agricultural resources support a healthy economy and a sustainable way of life. In effect, farming has been and continues to be a vital component of the Commonwealth’s economy; according to the Virginia Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts, farming in Virginia yields approximately $19.5 billion in agricultural production and employs more than 235,000 people.
