On Real Virginia: Cantaloupe country, and bears’ big appetites

Featured this month on Real Virginia, Virginia Farm Bureau’s weekly television program:

• Juicy local cantaloupes have a following—and a festival—in Halifax County.
• Hungry bears will treat farms like their personal salad bars.
• Farmers statewide benefit from work done at Virginia Cooperative Extension’s research centers.
• Visit Pittsylvania County, one of the state’s agricultural powerhouses.

Real Virginia can be viewed online and airs nationwide at 3:30 p.m. on the first Saturday of each month on RFD-TV on Dish Network Channel 231 and DirecTV Channel 345, and on selected cable outlets around the state.

It airs weekly on WVPT Harrisonburg, WBRA Roanoke, WCVE Richmond, WHRO Norfolk, WVVA Bluefield and WTKR Norfolk.
