Victory Farms: the FarmVictory Farms is a small, family-run, Certified Naturally Grown farm in Richmond, Virginia. After farming in Hanover from 2007-2011 (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 2014 – 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!

In the spring, we will be selling produce onsite at the new farm after the construction is complete and will continue to provide a variety of buying opportunities at markets 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. The new farm is very close in, only 5 miles from downtown!

2014 is Victory Farms’ 19th 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!


Victory Farms Inc. owner and farmer, Charlie Collins, working the fields. Photo by George Cruger (1940-2012)


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 just opened a new exhibition called “Unreal: Conceptual Photography from the 1970s and 80s,” that has been 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
