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.
