October, 1987 WORKING HARD For You Prevent eye injuries A new twist has been added to an old Virginia Farm Bureau Federation program. According to Jonathan Shouse, manager of VFBF's Rural Health Program, the eye safety program has been expanded. "We are announcing to the county Farm Bureaus that they can sell safety glasses and sunglasses directly to the members," he said. "We realize that farming is a hazardous industry and this is one way we can help reduce the hazards. "Safety glasses are routinely provided to industrial employees, but we don't know of anyone trying to promote eye safety to the self-employed farmer." Shouse continued to say that the National Society To Prevent Blindness has determined that 90 percent of all farm and non-farm eye injuries can be avoided. "Since we never know when accidents are going to happen, the only way to prevent injuries is to make eye protection part of our daily routine," he said. "We believe that the Farm Bureau safety glasses can accompli...

10 Eleanor Whinnery Media Specialist A Taste of VIRGINIA Winner is selected (Editor's note: Eleanor Whinnery is a media specialist with the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.) To highlight the Governor's Grocer of the Year Award presentation Oct. 11 at the Virginia Food Dealers Convention, an all-Virginia menu will be served at the brunch. Presented in the grand ballroom of the Hotel Roanoke, the governor's award will go to the Virginia retail store that has made an outstanding effort to promote and merchandise Virginia agricultural food products this past year. It's most appropriate that Virginia products will be served at the brunch prior to the surprise announcement of the 1987 winner. Those attending the brunch will sample a taste of Virginia country ham, scrambled eggs, hash browns with Cheddar Cheese and peppers, baskets of sweet potato biscuits, peanut muffins and corn Please see Winner, Page 15 Apple harvest is on statewide RICHMOND—FaII is upon us—the...

Farm Bureau Vol 46, No. 10 Olin sees no sweeping ag changes By PENNA PLYMIRE VFB News Editor When U.S. Rep. James R. Olin (D-Roanoke) spent childhood summers on his uncle's farm, he probably wasn't thinking the experience would help him in later years. Now serving Virginia's agriculture industry in several capacities in the U.S. Congress, Olin said this and other farm related activities have given him perspective on issues facing farmers today. "It's been interesting getting back into it," he said in a telephone interview. "There are lot of things different, but there are a lot of things that are the same." Olin, who has been selected to speak at the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation's Annual Convention, will elaborate on his viewpoint during his keynote address Dec. 2 at 9 a.m. The event is being held at the Williamsburg Hilton and Conference Center. Olin said he will address the Farm Bureau audience on domestic agriculture and the exportation of agricultural commodities. "I'm going ...

2 Farm Bureau faces policy development This is the time of year the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation finalizes its year-long challenges and begins making plans for the coming year. Stated another way, Virginia's largest farm organization is in the midst of its allimportant policy development process. Earlier this month, the VFBF Resolutions Committee met in Charlottesville and arrived at consensus resolutions—the next-to-last stop along the annual policy development process. In early December comes the grand finale, the VFBF Annual Convention in Williamsburg, where voting delegates will consider these consensus resolutions for official 1988 Farm Bureau policy. These delegates, in essence, are representing the wants and needs of every Farm Bureau producer member. Both the Resolutions Meeting and the Annual Convention are year-long results of intense policy development at the county levels across the Old Dominion. But the work began early in the year at the local level. Farmers in each...

4 Agriculture showcased at Virginia State Fair By PENNA PLYMIRE VFB New Editor RICHMOND—The 1987 State Fair of Virginia put the accent on youth and home grown, in state products to showcase the Commonwealth's agriculture industry. According to Susan Kirby Simpson, product promotion supervisor at the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, we wanted to increase traffic and improve education. We wanted to draw interest from the whole state of Virginia, not just within the 100 mile radius around Richmond. One way fair organizers did this was to invite students from various schools in Virginia for a tour. We received permission from the school systems to use the state fair as an educational opportunity for the fourth graders, she said, and literally thousands of youth were brought in. Volunteers herded groups Oct. 28 through Oct. 1 to various stops on the fairgrounds. The students were shown a map of Virginia outlining major products in the state and where they are pro...

November, 1987 Diner's tradition continues to grow Continued from Page 1 The upcoming holiday season represents the first full year of catalogue sales, and Galloway is even more excited than usual. He expects more than $2 million worth of business by the end of the year, which is double the 1986 volume and 10-fold volume since taking over 11 years ago. "Christmastime is an absolute Chinese fire drill around here," he adds enthusiastically as cooks prepare container after container of the worldfamous peanuts. The operation has grown so rapidly that it forced the Galloways from their home behind the restaurant so it could be converted to corporate offices. The quick growth also created the construction of a 50 by 100 foot cookery to take pressure off the kitchen staff in the restaurant. But that hasn't affected the quality of the Diner's food. Customers still flock to savor the southern traditions like old-fashioned Virginia ham, country sausage, southern fried chicken, red eye gravy,...

November, 1987 USDA program provisions are announced WASHINGTON—The U.S. Department of Agriculture has issued final rules clarifying the requirements of the conservation provisions of the 1985 Farm Bill. Meanwhile, the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation urges all Virginia farmers to get involved with the provisions in order to remain eligible for USD A programs. Under the conservation provisions, farmers will be ineligible for federal government program benefits unless they have a conservation plan by 1990. The plan is to be implemented by 1995 if they are plowing highly erodible land or converting wetlands. The rules clarify definitions of highly erodible land, wetland and converted wetland. They also say that although plowing alfalfa, legumes or other grasses in a crop rotation is considered sodbusting, the rotation may be an acceptable conservation system. However, farmers need to have the rotation approved by the local conservation district before plowing. Certain crop acreage base...

8 Name dropper • Parker develops private labels By PENNA PLYMIRE VFB News Editor COURTLAND—What's in a name? A lot if it 's your name on a product, as Fred Parker, owner and operator of Virginia Peanuts Inc.. will tell you. But he has added a new twist—Parker sells peanuts in cans marked with other people's names. He markets 22-ounce cans of peanuts with the names of businesses or organizations on them. "It's kind of a two-way thing. People really like to see their names on things, he said. "People enjoy giving gifts with their names on it." The newest addition to his line of peanut products, his private labels, include the trademark of a Courtland car dealership. When customers purchase cars from them, they are sent a can of peanuts with the custom designed label. Parker also worked on a special order label for a friend in the Republican party. The can sports a drawing of an elephant and GOPeanuts. "This is something I've wanted to do for a long time," he said. "It's fun to design ...
