Visit Agriberry Farm
Agriberry Farm is not usually open to the public, but visitors are welcome during our Farm Visit days, which are advertised and managed through Eventbrite. Reservations are strongly encouraged, as space is limited. All events for the 2021 season are complete. Events for the 2022 season will be announced in May 2022.
Though not visible from the road, Agriberry Farm’s fields are located directly behind the parking area at the green-roofed, grey metal packing shed, which is adjacent to River Road. Accessing the fields involves a quarter-mile walk along a woodland path, including some stairs and uneven footing. Orange cones will help guide you from the parking and barn area across Crump Creek and out to the fields.

Visit the Historic Hanover Courthouse Area
After your visit to the farm, consider a visit to the Hanover Courthouse area, which is just a few minutes north of River Road on Rt. 301. This scenic area includes the Hanover Tavern, Hanover’s beautiful Colonial-era courthouse and original jail, and spots for fine and casual dining. If you’re ready for more outdoor activity, the nearby Courthouse Park offers a nice walking trail and room to run.
Address: 6289 River Road, Hanover, VA 23069
From Richmond/295: Take Rt 301 north approximately 10 miles to the intersection with River Rd. (Rt 605, which 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 at the farm!
TIPS FOR YOUR SAFETY AND COMFORT!
The Geyer family looks forward to your visit to Agriberry Farm, but hopes you’ll take a moment to review the notes below to ensure that everyone in your group is prepared for a safe visit.
IMPORTANT NOTE: RESTROOM FACILITIES ARE LIMITED
Toilet and hand washing facilities are limited to a single portable unit in the fields. In addition, there is a single bathroom available inside the barn by the parking area, but be sure to so factor in a little extra time in case there’s a line.
Conditions in the field can be extreme, so please also double-check the weather forecast before you head out, with special thought to protection from the rain or sun, including loose fitting, light colored, long-sleeved clothing. Please BE SURE to bring at least one large water bottle per person. As our young workers can attest, picking is very thirsty work! Don’t forget the rain gear, depending on the forecast. In the event of extreme weather conditions, the fields will be closed for safety.
FOOTWARE AND WALKING CONDITIONS
Agriberry Farm is a working farm and footing can be tricky. Please move carefully and keep a sharp eye on the youngest members of your group. We recommend sturdy, field-ready, water-friendly footware for everyone visiting the farm.
FLORA AND FAUNA
The farm is home to many types of plants, insects–including bees and wasps–and other wild creatures. Exposure is at your own risk. If you are highly sensitive or allergic, our fields might not be the best choice for you.
