Currently on the farm….

PORK BULK SAUSAGE:
Jimmy and I have a personal venture of making bulk pork sausage – this is separate from the farm. We have a Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services inspected and certified kitchen. The sausage comes to you looking like hamburger in 1 pound (quart bag) and 5 pounds (gallon bag) that you patty yourself. Not only for breakfast, many use it in meatloaf, spaghetti sauce, lasagna, sausage balls, etc.
Please be mindful that the sausage is prepared from meat cut the day we grind and only has spices – NO preservatives. We take pride in making sausage the way the older generations did and kindly request you pick it up within 2 days of our phone call. It can be in your refrigerator for 5 days 37 degrees or below before freezing.
Taking orders for making. $20 5 pounds/gallon bag or $5 1 pound/quart bag. EMAIL ORDERS@OLIVERPRODUCE.COM with the BEST phone number and quantity you are looking to get.
SPRING-STRAWBERRIES:  Strawberry season will be here before we know it. We are you pick or we pick.
Currently, I am working on scheduling groups – albeit field trips for schools or church groups – for the upcoming season. If you know of someone that might be interested, please forward this or send me their contact information and I will get them the information. Before going in the field, I tell them about whats involved in strawberry production. Always nice to know where your food comes from!
VEGETABLES: Catalogs are arriving almost daily of goodies this summer.
SUMMER-Our talent lies in sweet corn, butterbeans and crowder peas but what other things might you be interested in? I’m listening.
Pre-order at orders@oliverproduce.com: since we sell out of butterbeans BEFORE we even harvest, I strongly recommend sending us an email early to get on the list. We keep a spreadsheet of your interest or amount you want of all our produce. When harvest begins, I contact customers on our spreadsheet before I send out emails or post to facebook. Early bird gets the goodies in this case!
FALL-Collards, cabbage, broccoli, kale, beets, brussel sprouts and a few other surprises.
Everything is picked fresh the day you want to pickup.
SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS: Being on our email lists, news@oliverproduce.com, gets you a heads up to our season. Our facebook: Oliver Farms Produce – Smithfield, VA  is another ways to know whats happening on the farm.
Hope to see you at the farm this year!

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
