Farm Bureau president visits area farms

American Farm Bureau Federation president Zippy Duvall was the guest of honor August 5 for a tour of agricultural operations in the Northern Neck and Middle Peninsula regions hosted by Virginia Farm Bureau Federation (VFBF) leaders.

The tour began at the 2021 Virginia Ag Expo at Corbin Hall in Water View where VFBF president Wayne F. Pryor introduced Duvall to Virginia farmers and industry associates. They then traveled to Montague Farms in Essex County where Duvall was interviewed for Real Virginia, VFBF’s weekly television program.

“What makes (the U.S.) different from any other agriculture in the world is our infrastructure,” Duvall said during the interview. “Tear down barriers, give us a level playing field and we’ll outcompete any farmer in the rest of world.”
