New!

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 an Urban Farmstand in the Forest Hill Park neighborhood on Wednesdays and Saturdays and, starting July 4th, a Rural Farmstand on our farm in Varina (see below for both locations). 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.

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!

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!

Victory Farms: the FarmVictory Farms is a small, family-run, Certified Naturally Grown farm in Richmond, Virginia. After farming in Hanover from 2006-2011 (see About Us page for our complete history), owners Charlie and Gina Collins moved into Richmond in early 2012, purchased a new farm in Varina in early 2013, and are pursuing a number of new and exciting projects - keep an eye on this website for news as we progress!

We are taking Farm Membership applications for 2015 - all the great features of our former CSA's - so let us know soon if you're interested in making a commitment to eating healthy and buying weekly from Victory Farms! Details and applications on this website!

Starting July 4th, we will be selling produce onsite at the new farm and will continue to provide a variety of buying opportunities at both that Rural Farmstand as well as our Urban Farmstand in the Forest Hill Park neighborhood, as well as the many and varied specialty stores and restaurants listed above. In addition to selling produce, we plan to develop a series of hands-on classes and activities that will bring you directly in touch with your produce and your farmer.

2015 is Victory Farms' 20th season of growing amazing quality vegetables, greens, herbs and vining fruits and we look forward to growing more great food for you this season! Sign up for our Farm Emails (look to the lower right of this page) to keep updated on our progress or find us on Facebook!

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
