Speakers: Veterans Have What It Takes for Farm Work

That was a primary message delivered at the first Virginia Farming Conference, held Thursday-Friday at Hudson Heritage Farms near Elmo, and hosted by David and Denise Hudson, each a veteran.

Veterans possess just the right attributes to succeed at farming, being used to hard work, discipline and keeping focused on the task at hand, according to a number of speakers.
