    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- The value of farm real estate in Virginia has increased over the past year.

    A federal survey shows that the value of land and buildings on farms was an average $4,320 per acre this year. That's up from $4,310 per acre in 2013.

    Cropland value increased by $10 per acre to $4,460. The value of pastureland was unchanged at $3,930.

    Isn’t that nice just in time for eminent domain proceedings. Our governor in his glory has decided to team with Dominion and Duke to build a pipeline. Utilities have the upper-hand when it comes to eminent domain or stealing private land. This was a practice started by Kings, it was bad then and it’s bad now! In a republic we are supposed to be protected as individuals against trumped up for the common good rhetoric. Looks like the governor sold us out!
