Things to Do; Visit a Working Farm in Surrey

College Run Farms is located in Surry, Virginia at 2051 Alliance Road 757-294-3498

The farm is run by Steve and Jordan Berryman and is named after a water source that is located near the farm, from which we irrigate. Our farm mascot is Patch the Cat who is currently on vacation at our home! Our two little boys also help us on the farm!

Pick-Your-Own Schedule:

* always – always- always call ahead *

May – Strawberries

June – Blueberries

July – Sweet Corn

August – Butter Beans

Late September/October – Pumpkins

Seasonal crops:

TIP:  the crops are seasonal and may not be available every day. Mother Nature has her own schedule and decides when the crops are ready.  Sometimes College Run Farms are between pickings and have a few days where they are waiting for their produce to ripen. Weather also plays a role in what is available. Always call ahead to ensure that what you are looking for is available that day, and to make sure they are open! Farming depends on the weather, which is unpredictable!
