I have exciting news…we are on for strawberries this year. We weathered through last years blow from Hurricane Mathew and are thankful for the field we have growing for 2018. The plants are well established in their beds and are looking fabulous. I am scheduling field trips NOW for schools, scouts, church groups, etc. This years trip will also include a video presentation of planting to picking.
Since we didn’t have strawberries last year, many of you may have missed our addition to the farm – July 2016 ground was broken for the first Solar Farm in Virginia. It went online in December 2016.
I took pictures throughout the construction process-from the last field of cotton in 2015 to completion with an overhead shot of the farm. I compiled them into a video presentation to share with school age students and would love to show it to your class. Please contact me directly for more details.

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:
