About us After researching the existence of food processing facilities in Virginia, we were surprised to find that there is not a place where fresh, local food can be preserved. In this environment of incredible local food demand, combined with the need for farmers to increase produce sales and retain or expand their farms, we see a small-scale food processing facility as the missing link in a truly local food system. Ken Meter, a food systems analyst of the Crossroads Research Center, has studied Virginia’s food system and summarized that 85 to 90% of the food Virginians eat originates or is produced somewhere else. With our favorable climate and ability to grow diverse crops, combined with a strong demand for purchasing local foods, Virginia Food Works will “connect the dots” in our food system. Virginia Food Works is a full-service food processing facility located in Prince Edward County, Virginia. The venture is a public/private partnership where the processing facility and equipment are owned and maintained by the government of Prince Edward County. The facility is uniquely located in the “heartland” of Virginia, allowing easy access for farmers and food entrepreneurs across the state of Virginia.
