The VA Food Heritage Map

Interactive Food Heritage Portal

Welcome to the Interactive Food Heritage Portal.

Thank you so much for your interest in the Virginia Food Heritage Project. Our mission is to create a greater understanding and documentation of our food heritage to enhance regional sustainability and resilience. As we build this knowledge we hope to create opportunities for creating a regional food identity that can contribute to economic development, tourism, and a revival of heritage foods at our farms, homes and restaurants.

To do this, we need your help: please share your knowledge about our regional food heritage!

Have a piece of food heritage to share? Involved in the growth or production of heritage breed fruits, vegetables, or animals?
PLEASE tell us about it in our survey. Click here to take the survey.
