From the Director 

Fresh Impact FarmPlease allow me a moment to share some good news. On Monday, Governor Ralph Northam recognized an Arlington County Small Business, Fresh Impact Farms, by announcing that they would become the recipient of Arlington’s first ever Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development (AFID) Fund grant from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS). 


This urban agriculture project, located in the Lee Highway corridor, is a wonderful example of technology innovation to provide environmentally sustainable method of food sourcing in an urban environment.  Further this business demonstrated the ability to pivot their business model, from B2B to direct to consumer, in the midst of the pandemic and now their business is growing.
