Agribusiness, Food Processing & Technology

Horton Winery, Orange County

As a largely rural region with the benefits of urban transportation and technology infrastructure, Central Virginia is a natural choice for agribusiness, agritourism, and food processing ventures. Central Virginia’s strategic location offers agribusinesses access to major markets along the east coast, across the country, and abroad. Furthermore, Central Virginia’s own dynamic locavore culture creates a robust market for local agricultural produce, as featured in Southern Living magazine.

With plenty of room for growth and expansion, the opportunities for innovative agribusinesses are limitless.
