May, 1987 Field sanitation issue decision expected soon RICHMOND-Secretary of Labor William E. Brock is expected to finalize proposed regulations on field sanitation in agriculture soon. The problems began in October 1985 when Brock concluded that a federal field sanitation standard would be necessary unless enough state standards were issued that were as effective as federal criteria. Then a task force developed the Virginia Proposed Field Sanitation Standard, which the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation supported. Dudley Rinker, Richard Inge and P.C. Kellam communicated support for the proposed standard at three public hearings held throughout the state. However, the secretary's decision was challenged in court by the Farmworker Justice Fund Inc. and others. The court ruled that "the secretary's decision was based on factors the secretary could not lawfully consider and on an unreasonable expectation that the states could be encouraged to provide adequate protection to farm workers w...

6 Pure and natural Virginia-made soap has roots in England KwSb fJ| r I 4 ' MH pj Sarah Churchill of Ivy feeds an one-week old goat. Eventually, this goat will grow up to produce milk for her goat's milk soap operation. (Photo by Penna Plymire) By Penna Plymire FBN Editor IVY--What was an England-born idea turned into a Virginia-made product. Sarah Churchill was relaxing during a trip to England several years ago when she happened to pick up her aunt's cookbook. Thumbing through it, she found a recipe for cow's milk soap. Upon returning to her Ivy home, she applied the idea to goat's milk and a new business was born. Miss Churchill and her partner, Kate Crosby of Esmont, formed Dionis Goat Milk Soap Inc. Their product contains one ounce of milk per bar and is hand manufactured. "Most people think it's a unique idea," Miss Churchill said. "You have to fight against the negative feelings about goat's milk some people have." Goat's milk provides a mild, moisturiz- Farm Bureau Products ...

May, 1987 How Does Your Garden Grow? (Editor's Note: This material was provided by Diane Relf and Alan McDaniel, extension specialists in horticulture, and Vicki Karaglanis, urban garden coordinator for the department of horticulture, all of Virginia Tech.) RICHMOND-Choosing and purchasing vegetable seeds is one of the most enjoyable gardening pastimes. Keep notes about the seeds you purchase-their germination qualities, vigor of plants, tendencies toward insects and disease, etc. From this information you can determine whether one seed company is not meeting your needs or whether the varieties you have chosen are unsuitable for your area or gardening style. For example, if powdery mildew is a big problem on squash family plants in your area, the next year you may want to look for mildew-resistant varieties. Saving Seed Saving your own vegetable seed is pleasurable activity. It offers a sense of self-sufficiency and saves money. You can maintain a variety that is not available comme...

Vol. 46, No. 6 Stress is part of farm living By Penno Plymire FBN Editor TAPPAHANNOCK-Farm debt. Low commodity prices. High production costs. Drought. Bankruptcy. All of these conditions are very real to Virginia farmers. Representatives from the agricultural credit business, the extension service, the Soil Conservation and Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Services, the banking community and farm produce suppliers gathered April 22 at Lowery's to see how to help their clients deal with these and other problems. The meeting kicked off with H. Earl Longest, president of the Richmond Farm Credit Service, giving a brief history on the agricultural situation. In his speech, Longest said the "boom years" in the farm economy began when the Soviet Union decided to import grain from the United States.

2 FB district meetings completed RICHMOND--The Virginia Farm Bureau Federation wound up its meetings in the state's congressional districts in May. Farm Bureau county leaders presented a list of nine issues pertinent to farmers to the congressmen in each district. The following is a list of the topics and Farm Bureau's position on them. Farm Programs Omnibus agricultural legislation designed to remain in place for five years was passed in 1985 in the form of the Food Security Act of 1985. This legislation revised the farm program provisions for the major commodities (dairy, wheat, feed grains, cotton, rice, peanuts, soybeans, sugar, wool and mohair). It also contains numerous general provisions and authority in the areas of trade, conservation, credit, agricultural research, food stamps, marketing, clear title for buyers of agricultural products and promotional programs for pork, beef and watermelons. Farm Bureau's position is that the Food Security Act of 1985, although imperfect, ...

During a public hearing May 8, the Commission on Game and Inland Fisheries changed the general deer season from Jan. 5 to the first Saturday in January.

June, 1987 Farmers' market race is on By Norm Hyde VFBF Broadcast Editor RICHMOND-Political infighting is already under way between two Southwest Virginia communities striving to be chosen for one of the statesponsored farmers' market facilities that are in the planning stages this summer. Carroll County Farm Bureau President Worth Cox said the farmers in his county have done their homework on their proposal and believe any facility should go there first since there is already a strong fresh produce production base in place. "We have been working on it now for three years," Cox said recently, "so we're ready to go. We have the site; we have the farmers; we have between 50 and 75 people who are signed up, saying they want a space at the market." Carroll County is the leading area of the state for cabbage production and already has a strong out-of-state trade in tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers. There are also several big orchards in the county and Cox said growers are planting caulifl...

6 Stress seminar aids farm families Continued from Page 1 "Virginia farm expenses for the year of 1975 were $925 million which equaled $3.88 per dollar net income of $238 million. Virginia farm expenses of $1,824 billion for the year of 1985 equaled $9.96 for each dollar of net income of $183 million. "Virginia farm debt increased from $933 million in 1975 to $2,241 billion in 1985 or 141 percent. Virginia farm expenses increased from $925 million in 1975 to $1,824 billion in 1985 equaling a 97 percent increase," Longest concluded. A panel discussion on how this economic condition is affecting the state farmers followed on the agenda. Maurice Carpenter, who has retired from the Tappahannock Farm Credit Service, opened his remarks by saying, "There's plenty of blame to go around." He blamed government programs that are "subjecting farmers to welfare status." "Farmers today have to call the ASCS office and see what they can and cannot do that day," he said. "There's no freedom anymore...

June, 1987 Programs offered to displaced farmers Continued from Pag* 6 analysts, often farmers experienced in credit and finance, work with financially stressed farmers to help them realistically assess their status and identify viable options. Lawyers in Illinois give free legal counsel on farmers' foreclosure and bankruptcy questions. Farmers must often cope with a large set of problems that no single organization or specialist can effectively handle. Coalitions of a variety of institutions have appeared to deal with such complex problems. Nebraska church groups, educational institutions, advocacy groups, lenders and attorneys have combined to establish a response network. The North Dakota Extension Service has teamed up with the Human Service Centers, the State Mental Health Association and the State Job service. And the Minnesota Extension Service works with the attorney general's office to maintain a hotline for stressed farm families. Financial Bridges Some displaced farmers m...

10 Tom O'Grady sells no wine before it's time By Penna Plymire FBN Editor HAMPDEN-SYDNEY-The Greek god bacchus was said to have raised grape growing and winemaking to an art and mere mortals have the challenge of maintaining it. According to vintner Tom O'Grady, owner and operator of Rose Bower Vineyard, there are still many misconceptions about winemaking. Myth: There is money to be made in the wine industry. "Winemaking is a business where you cannot think in terms of economic flow," O'Grady said. "You are in a situation where you are one of the unsubsidized agricultural products around." Germany and France pay their farmers to produce wines. Myth: Raising grapes is inexpensive. People have asked O 'Grady about the cost of producing grapes and quoted figures as low as $5,000 per acre. He estimates the figure is closer to $15,000 per acre without the cost of the land. By the same token, O 'Grady said it is difficult to manufacture a gallon of wine for $25 a gallon; a more realistic...
