College Run Farms
College Run Farms was founded in 1999, after Farmer Steve
graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in Agriculture
and Applied Economics. As a 6th generation farmer raised with
row crops and hogs, Farmer Steve wanted to diversify and try
something new. The first strawberry crop was planted in 1999,
and different crops were added over the years, such as sweet
corn, pumpkins, blueberries, and butter beans. The farm is
open daily from late April through October, and closed over
the winter months. Farmer Steve and his wife, Jordan, operate
the farm, along with their two sons and farm cat, Patch. College
Run Farms is named after a water source located near the farm
that provides irrigation. It is a a pick-your-own farm and
allows customers to enter the fields and harvest their own
food for the majority of the crops.
