Who We Are

Oliver Farms LLC is located in Smithfield, Virginia and run by fourth generation farmers: Jimmy and JV Oliver. Primarily a row crop farm, the cousins grow cotton, soybeans and grain sorghum on the family owned farm.

Oliver Farms Produce begins 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 windows on the “strawberry shack” where we have produce fresh picked daily: sweet corn, cucumbers, vine ripe tomatoes, cantaloupes, butterbeans and crowder peas. Fall produce: collards, cabbage, broccoli, kale and brussel sprouts are planted late summer and ready for your Thanksgiving table. Customers can pre-order by emailing: orders@oliverproduce.com and become a fan on facebook at Oliver Farms Produce – Smithfield, VA.

We proudly provide the freshest and best we grow here at Oliver Farms Produce. Easily reachable from Suffolk, the Peninsula, Smithfield and Windsor, our customers believe as we do: buying from your local farmer is assurance it hasn’t been picked and traveling for days! We support and believe in locally grown produce…..From Our Field To Your Table.

    Are the strawberries sprayed?

    Has your produce been certified organic? I’d LOVE to get some of your produce but I am very sensitive to pesticides. Thanks!

    • We do not put anything on our produce. In order to be CERTIFIED organic, land must lay out of production for 3 years. We are a working farm and this is our sole incoome, so we cannot do that. By rotating our fields each year, pests don’t build up in the soil thus not given the same plant as a host. We have lots of bees, ladybugs and earthworms on our farm.

    I understand from C3 Vino that you make sausage. Would you ever consider holding a class? I raise my own pigs and really want to learn to make sausage. None of my attempts have really been good.

    • While the farm was started back in the early 1900’s, and Jimmy’s grandfather, father and uncle slaughtered hogs, we no longer do that. Our sausage is made from pork trimmings.
      In thinking about it, my best suggestion would be online! In this day and age, you can google anything!

      Good luck.
