Want to know more about Agriberry Farm? Come see how we grow!
The Geyer family loves seeing the changes each season brings to the farm, and hopes you will, too. They open the farm to visitors several times during the growing season, and each Farm Visit has a different focus, depending on what’s happening at that time of year. You can tour the fields, talk with the Geyer family and workers, stock up on farm goodies, and–conditions permitting–pick some berries.
The Agriberry Farm fields and orchards are located a short walk through the trees along Crump Creek, behind the grey metal barn with a green roof. Please feel free to bring your family, friends and leashed pets (and clean-up bags, due to food safety regulations). Everyone is welcome!
Next Farm Visit: Saturday, August 26, 2-4pm
Our August farm visit will feature our prized fall red raspberries, with perhaps a few of our last blackberries for picking as well. We hope you and your family can come!
Planning Your Visit
Keep in mind that accessing the fields involves a quarter-mile walk along a woodland path with some uneven footing. (Orange cones will help guide you from the barn to the fields.) Once you’re in the fields, navigating the rows of the field and across the irrigation system can be a little tricky, too.
Please BE SURE to bring at least one water bottle per person. As our young workers can attest, picking is very thirsty work!
We recommend good, field-ready, water-friendly footware for everyone in your group, as well as weather-appropriate clothing, including sun protection for this outdoor activity (hats, sunscreen or coats, rain gear, etc.,)
Without putting too fine a point on it, bathroom facilities are limited to a single portable unit in the fields. We suggest allowing time for a visit to the single bathroom at the barn by the parking area before you head to the fields, so maybe factor in a little time.
Not interested in visiting the fields or picking? Our Farm Visit days are a great time to stop by the farm and stock up on all your favorite goodies. We’ll have a mini-market set up with all your favorites!
After your visit to the farm, if you’ve never visited the Historic Hanover Courthouse area, it’s just a few minutes further north on Rt. 301 beyond the turn for River Road. This scenic area includes fine and casual dining, shopping, and Hanover’s beautiful Colonial-era courthouse and original jail. If you’re still ready for more outdoor activity, the Courthouse Park offers lots of room to run, plus a nice walking trail.
Important Note: If you are highly sensitive to bee or wasp stings, our fields might not be the best choice for you.

Parking for all Farm Visits is provided at Agriberry Farm’s “Woodberry Farm” site, unless otherwise noted. Address: 6289 River Road, Hanover, VA 23069
From Richmond/295: Take Rt 301 N approximately 10 miles to the intersection with River Rd (Rt 605). (River Rd. comes in from the right to form a “T” just north of Signal Hill Cemetery and south of Courthouse Park.) Turn right onto River Road and drive for approximately 1.8 miles to Agriberry Farm on the right.
We hope to see you soon at the farm!
