Agribusiness thrives in Central Virginia
Our largely rural landscape is home to cattle farms, greehouses, craft beverage producers, and more. Central Virginia’s wineries, breweries, cideries, and distilleries attract visitors to tastings and special events as part of the flourishing craft beverage tourism industry. Piedmont Virginia Community College offers certifications in brewing and winemaking. Many greenhouses use advanced technologies, such as robotics, in their production processes, providing opportunities for skilled, as well as unskilled laborers.
