Farming has a rich history in Henrico, but an uncertain future

As the summer begins, corn, wheat, soybeans, herbs and fruit are growing throughout Henrico County.

Despite surrounding three sides of Richmond and being the fifth most populous county in the state, Henrico is still home to 117 farms and 12,891 acres of farmland. County residents and leaders have been debating the role of farms in Henrico for the past 50 years.
