Founded in 2008, Agriberry Farm is owned and operated by the Geyer family–Anne and Chuck Geyer, and their adult children, Pierson and Colleen Geyer.
The Geyers produce perennial fruits, including raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, cherries, peaches, nectarines, plums and apples on 25 acres of land in Hanover, Virginia, about 30 minutes northeast of Richmond. The Geyers grow strawberries in Mosley, Virginia, which is south of Richmond.
The family is deeply grateful for the ongoing support of their loyal customers and the USDA grant programs.
In addition to supporting area farmer’s markets and select specialty retailers, the farm offers the region’s only fruit-oriented CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program, now available in the greater Richmond area, Virginia’s Northern Neck and Williamsburg areas, and the greater Annapolis, Maryland area.
As career farmers, the Geyers protect their land; raise nutritious food; craft nourishing relationships with area family-owned farms, and educate young workers about the value of agriculture.
As business owners, they work to support the emerging local food systems and create local job opportunities, especially for first-time young workers.
As parents, Anne and Chuck are proud to build a home and business on the farm, creating a legacy of value for their children.
As community members, they work to increase local consumption of nutritious seasonal fruit, and they support a wide variety of local food programs and charitable and educational programs each year.
The Geyers operate a “full disclosure” farm, and they pledge to tell the truth about the source and supporting farm practices of the food they bring to market. The farm is open by appointment, and does not offer “pick-your-own” except in conjunction with special Open Farm events during the harvest season.
