Come See How We Grow!
Agriberry Farm is not typically open to the public. To help you learn more about the farm, Agriberry Farm is open for special Farm Visit days a few times each year. The focus of each Farm Visit varies depending on what’s happening at that time of year, and you can expect to be able to walk the fields, talk with the Geyer family and some of our workers, stock up on farm goodies, and–conditions permitting–pick some great berries.
The Geyer family loves seeing the changes the seasons bring to Agriberry Farm, and hopes you will, too. Everyone is welcome on Farm Visit days: young and old, friends and family, and even leashed pets (plus clean-up bags, due to food safety regulations). Be sure to check our tips below in order to help ensure that everyone has a great time at the farm.
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, 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!
2018 Farm Visit Schedule
We’ve completed our schedule of farm visits for the 2018 harvest season, and the 2019 schedule will be announced in the Spring. Please note that all visits are Rain or Shine events, and the opportunity to pick berries is subject to the discretion of the Geyer family depending on harvest conditions at all events. Watch our Facebook page for any updates.
Planning Your Visit
Agriberry Farm’s fields are located directly behind the green-roofed, grey metal barn and packing shed and parking area are immediately off of River Road. Accessing the fields involves a quarter-mile walk along a woodland path with some uneven footing across Crump Creek and winds through the trees. (Orange cones will help guide you from the parking/barn to the fields.)
SOME SAFETY AND COMFORT NOTES
- Once you’re in the fields, please be careful walking due to uneven footing, the irrigation system, and sticks and weed growth.
- 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 or resistant footware for everyone in your group.
- 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.
- If you plan to bring a leashed pet, please be sure to scoop as you go.
- Our farm is home to many types of plants, insects and other wild creatures. Contact with them is at your own risk. If you are highly sensitive to bee or wasp stings, our fields might not be the best choice for you.
Not interested in visiting the fields or picking? Our Farm Visit days are a great time to swing by the farm and stock up on all your favorite goodies. We’ll have a mini-market set up outside the barn 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.
