WVDA aiding farmers impacted by COVID-19

CHARLESTON — The West Virginia Department of Agriculture is working with local producers and farmers impacted by COVID-19 mitigation efforts by facilitating communication between producers and potential buyers.

Business development and marketing staff have received calls from multiple producers who are experiencing a surplus of food or other burdens due to the pandemic.To assist these affected businesses, the Department will provide an on-going directory to those who are interested in being connected with a local, West Virginia farmer and their availability of food. Producers who are interested in being added to the list can reach out to the WVDA Business Development Division. In order to add items to the distribution list, producers should be prepared to provide contact information and details of available products.
