Where did the summer go? We are in full, fall swing here. We will begin harvesting cotton in the next couple weeks. We have  ONE more field of butterbeans we HOPE to harvest in October. Thankfully, we were blessed with a good harvest on our last field and I have only a few orders hanging out there. WHICH MEANS, if you need more or didn’t order before, you MAY get lucky! Warm fall and no frost leaves us cautiously optimistic.
We finished planting them earlier this week. They are coming along nicely. I posted a video on our facebook, Oliver Farms Produce – Smithfield, VA, of planting.!


I am building our spreadsheet for our fresh, bulk pork sausage. Because we are in harvest mode, I don’t have a specific date of making. To the new people, we have a spreadsheet; when rains come, or harvest is done we will make sausage. I am certain we will make many times before Christmas and a few times before Thanksgiving. Gallon bag/5 pounds is $20; quart bag/1 pound is $5.
Send email to ORDERS@OLIVERPRODUCE.COM with NAME, BEST PHONE NUMBER and QUANTITY. We will call when it is ready for pickup.
Kale, collards, cabbage and broccoli are growing nicely. We usually cut a couple weeks before Thanksgiving and into the beginning of next year.
We are taking pre-orders for them at ORDERS@OLIVERPRODUCE.COM. Please include your name, best phone number, product and approximate quantity or interested. We can discuss quantity later if you don’t know. We cut the day you are planning to pickup so if you want yours date specific, please state that in the email and we will do our best to fill then.

About Oliver Farms Produce

Located in Smithfield, Oliver Farms, LLC is a working row crop farm with fresh summer produce sold on site as Oliver Farm Produce. We begin each produce year with strawberries in late April while the planting of our summer produce is just beginning. In late June through August we open the door to the "strawberry shack" where we have produce fresh picked daily: sweet corn, butterbeans, edamame and crowder peas. Fall/Thanksgiving and Christmas we re-open the shack where we will sell: collards, cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts and kale - cut the same day you pick up!! Customers can pre-order by emailing: orders@oliverproduce.com

    Please please do some pepper sausage! Do you have any more butter beans?

    • Our sausage is made in bulk, like hamburger, so you can add to it when you get it home.

      As for butterbeans, we are watching the field. They are setting pods and if Mother Nature continues with her warm weather, and no heavy frost, we hope to pick. If you haven’t pre-ordered, please send an email to orders@oliverproduce.com with name, best phone number to call, and quantity. $25 for gallon/5lbs.

      I don’t get these comments immediately so email, text or our facebook are best ways to ready us for quicker response.
