It is the policy of the Commonwealth of Virginia to conserve and protect and to encourage the development and improvement of the Commonwealth's agricultural and forestal lands for the production of food and other agriculutral and forestal products. It is also the policy of the Commonwealth to conserve and protect agricultural and forestal lands as valued natural and ecological resources which provide essential open spaces for clean air sheds, watershed protection, wildlife habitat, as well as for aesthetic purposes.

The AFD Program provides a means for a mutual undertaking by landowners and localities to protect and enhance agricultural and forestal lands as a viable segment of the Commonwealth's economy and as an economic and environmental resource of major importance.
