About Us


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. Our first strawberry crop was planted in 1999 and we added additional crops over the years, including sweet corn, pumpkins, blueberries, and butter beans. We are open from late April through October (always call ahead or check our website for daily hours), and closed over the Winter months. Farmer Steve and I (his wife, Jordan) operate the farm, along with our two little boys, Jake (10) and Henry (7). We have a lot of wonderful help from our family, too. Our parents help daily at the farm and make our farm jam (MackDaddy's Jam). Our sister helps make our homemade ice cream. We are blessed with a huge support system and we could not do it all without them :)

College Run Farms is named after a water source that is located near the farm, from which we irrigate. We are located in Surry, Virginia at 2051 Alliance Road. We are a pick-your-own farm and allow our customers to enter our fields and harvest their own food. Sometimes, already-picked items will be for sale inside our farm store, but always call ahead to check availability. You might want to try some of our homemade ice cream, too!

Pick-Your-Own Schedule:
May - strawberries
June & July - blueberries
July & early August - sweet corn
late September & October - pumpkins and gourds

We also grow butter beans which we harvest around mid-late July and sell in our Farm Store. You can also purchase our homemade ice cream, have a snack or lunch in our picnic area, and visit our giftshop, too, while at the farm.

Seasonal crops:(Please note that our crops are seasonal and may not be available every day. Mother Nature has her own schedule and decides when the crops are ready. Sometimes we are in between pickings and have a few days where we are waiting for our produce to ripen. Weather also plays a role in what is available. Always call ahead, check our Facebook updates, or read our web site to ensure that what you are looking for is available that day. Farming depends on the weather, which is unpredictable!
