General New User Information:
Please read the following information carefully before submitting your information:
Your Farm Owner or Farm Seeker application will remain active for a period of six months. At that time, an e-mail will be sent to you asking if you would like to continue to remain active in the Virginia Farm Link database. Your account will automatically be de-activated unless you click the link to keep your account active for an additional six months. Please contact the Virginia Farm Link program at 804.786.1906 or farmlinkadmin@vdacs.virginia.gov should you have any questions or need any additional information.
New Farm Seekers:
Once you submit your Virginia Farm Seeker application, you will have the ability to automatically send your application to any Farm Owner whose farm is currently listed and active in the Virginia Farm Link Database. To do so, please click on the box next to the Farm Owner’s information. You also have the ability to add any additional information to the Farm Owner(s) selected.  If you click on more than one Farm Owner at a time, you will only be able to add one message for all of the Farm Owners selected. You may want to consider only selecting one Farm Owner at a time if you would like to create a different message for each Farm Owner.

Farm Owners will receive Farm Seeker information once daily. Once the Farm Owner receives an e-mail from an interested Farm Seeker(s), it is up to the Farm Owner to decide how to best proceed, and whether or not to make contact with the Farm Seeker(s). If you would like Farm Owners to search for you as a farm seeker, who will need to complete the Certified Farm Seeker (CFS) program.  Only Certified Farm Seekers appear on the Farm Link map.  Farm Seekers who have completed the CFS program can demonstrate to farm owners that they have a completed a farm business plan, have on-farm experience and can demonstrate these on a professional resume. Signing up and becoming a Certified Farm Seeker is provided at no cost to participants. More information on the CFS program can be found 
here.

New Farm Owners:
Once you submit your Farm Owner application, the information that you provide (except for your name, address, phone number and e-mail information) will be available for review by those Farm Seekers who have completed their own application. Farm Seekers will have the ability to automatically send you an electronic notification of their interest in further discussing your farm/farming operation with you. These electronic notifications will be compiled and sent to you in a batch format daily. Once you receive an e-mail from an interested Farm Seeker(s), it is up to you to decide how to best proceed.

Once you submit your Virginia Farm Owner application, you will have the ability to search and contact those Virginia Farm Seekers that have completed the Certified Farm Seekers (CFS) program. Farm Seekers who have completed the CFS program have completed a farm business plan, have on-farm experience and can demonstrate these on a professional resume. More information on the CFS program can be found
