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, June 24, 2-4pm
This week in June is really the best time to visit the farm each year. We can **almost** guarantee that we will have black, purple and red raspberries in abundance, as well as early blackberries, ripe and ready for picking. We hope you will mark your calendar and make this an annual outing for your family to visit our fields. Be sure to watch the video from last year’s visit (2016), and check back for updates as we get closer to the date.
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 irrigation system can be a little tricky, too.
We recommend good, field-ready, water-friendly footware for everyone in your group, as well as weather-appropriate clothing and other protection for this outdoor activities (hats, sunscreen or coats, rain gear, etc.,) and please BE SURE to bring at least one water bottle per person.
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 bathroom at the barn by the parking area before you head to the fields.
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 and a nice walking trail.
