Critzer Family Farm

The Critzer's came to this area at the end of the Revolutionary War.

For five generations we have been actively involved in farming in this beautiful area of the Rockfish Valley located right on the Nelson and Albemarle County line.

We, Whitney and Rosemary Critzer, own and operate the farm that was at one time primarily a beef cow and orchard operation. Today, we are totally focused on providing fresh local fruits and vegetables. We open our Farm Market and Pick-Your-Own Operation the 1st weekend in May with Strawberries and run throughout the season.

Click on Today at Critzer Family Farm to see the list of seasonally fresh fruits, vegetables and plants and other products that are currently available. There also may be special events from time to time, so be sure to check back often.

You can also meet us at your local Farmer's Market in either Charlottesville, Waynesboro, Staunton or Verona.

Our Goals are to:

  • Provide for you the freshest, best tasting and healthiest produce that you can find.
  • Provide a friendly down home atmosphere for you and your family to enjoy.
  • Stand behind a five generation commitment to leave the land and community better than when we found it! (Using methods that are environmentally friendly).
  • Although we don't have kids, we love kids and want them to grow up understanding the value of hard work and integrity. We also want them to experience a bit of farm life so they can know and see where their food actually comes from, and to see some of the work behind what it takes it to get there.
  • Finally on a personal note...To be able to pay our bills when all is said and done.

Come and join us for a look at Farm living at its best! Enjoy the flavors, smells, and the feel of life on the farm.
