Virginia Farm Buying Guide

Finding and purchasing the right farm property is a much more complex venture than buying a residential home or a piece of land. We’ve assembled a short guide that will give the novice farm buyer an overview into the process:

Build Your Farm Team

It would only be considered prudent that when purchasing a working (or suitable to be made a working) farm that one would seek the advice of a team of professionals. That team would start with an experienced Virginia farm realtor immersed in the market, connected to the community and to the other professionals necessary to successfully guide you to your farm.

Virginia Soils

The fertile soils of Virginia are legendary. Many farmers or agronomists have come to Virginia to enjoy the variety, quality and the quantity of the Virginian soil.

Virginia employs the runoffs of the Blue Ridge Mountains, the glacial till of a time gone by, and the collective humus of the eons to offer the agronomist a variety of soil compositions to work with.

Virginia Soils & Hydrology

It is vital for the farmer to have a beyond the surface understanding of the water on his property, and actually becomes a bit of a hydrologist him or herself. When searching for your farm, acquaint yourself with the realtors that understand the importance of hydrology and its impact on the suitability of your new property to function as envisioned.

Farm Fencing

A farmer, or a farmer to be, seldom escape the need for fences. The rolling hillsides of Virginia are sectioned by farm owners to both “fence in,” and “fence out” as the need arises. When purchasing a farm, it essential to use a professional realtor who can incorporate the knowledge of the type of farming you want to do with the type of fencing a property already has, or would be able to have installed.
