You've found the link to RVA's finest produce!

Our family farm - so close to town, only 4 1/2 miles from downtown Richmond - provides Richmonders with Certified Naturally Grown, super high quality, freshly picked, compost grown vegetables, greens, herbs, vining fruits, and so much more! With 25 years of experience (quite literally) in the field, Farmer Charlie Collins knows how to grow the best for you and your family.

Victory Farms operates centrally-located, weekly Farmstands and a Rural Farmstand on our farm in Varina. We also sell to many area specialty grocers and restaurants (support local!). The farm itself is also available as an event site for your meeting, private dinner, or gathering. Please email us at ginaccollins@hotmail.com for more information on Rental Events.

Thanks for Keeping it Local!

Buy directly from YOUR farmer, see where your produce is grown, talk to the people who grow your food, AND get the freshest, compost grown, highest quality, affordable produce in RVA!

2016 Farmstands began in April. SPECIAL NOTE: we occasionally have weather-related cancellations or early closings so watch your emails and our Facebook page for details!

Dominion Substation Info

Dominion Virginia Power's proposal to build an electric substation across Osborne Turnpike from our farm IS BEING POSTPONED YET AGAIN. The Henrico County Planning Commission is will consider the discussion at their SEPTEMBER 2016 meeting. Dominion has asked for more time and says they are no longer considering alternative site options. This is not just about the immediate Osborne Turnpike neighbors, but about anyone concerned with maintaining the historic agricultural corridor, supporting our farm and other small family farms, and those who have concerns about eastern Henrico's future. There is also a petition in the rounds to be presented to the Planning Commissioners so ask us if you'd like more information on that.

Check out our CSA Farm Membership Program on our Member Info page!

Our compost grown vegetables, greens, and herbs are harvested daily from our family farm located less than 5 miles from downtown Richmond. Throughout the year, we will offer a seasonal availability of over 60 varieties of specialty and heirloom vegetables for gourmet cooks and salad lovers alike. Farmer’s market prices and the ability to buy freshly harvested greens, vegetables, and herbs directly from your farmer make Victory Farms the best choice for your veg needs!

IN MEMORIUM

Last December, we lost one of our best volunteers and a cherished friend, George Cruger. Most of the images on our Photo Gallery were taken by George over the course of 2007-2011. He came out to the farm, the markets, the farm parties - in the rain, the heat and the icy mornings to document our farm life and work. Retired from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts where he worked for three decades as the Photography Curator, the Publications Manager, and Editor. In fact, VMFA organized an exhibition in 2013 called "Unreal: Conceptual Photography from the 1970s and 80s," that was dedicated in memorium to George. We miss him dearly and are so thankful to have had so much fun with him and to be able to share some of his photo talents with you here.  Thanks George!! xoxo
