Anne Geyer was likely destined to operate a berry farm. She’s loved berries since childhood and recalls picking wild black raspberries every summer to make purple milk for her breakfast. While studying biology at Cornell University, she discovered the world of pomology, a branch of botany that studies the science of growing fruits and nuts.

Today through Agriberry Fruit Farm, which Anne operates with her husband, Chuck, along with their adult children, they grow red, black and purple raspberries, more than 10 varieties of blackberries, peaches, nectarines, plums, apples, blueberries and cherries. They partner with other family farms in the Hanover region to offer a variety of seasonal fruit, building camaraderie and a support network among small farmers.

Safely and sustainably caring for their crops has been Anne’s mission since day one. “We have lived alongside our berry fruit crops for 40 years, where we have raised our three children,” she says. She regularly works with specialty fruit professionals and associations so Agriberry can stay on top of the best information for quality care and safe farming practices.

Anne is dedicated to helping secure the future of sustainable agriculture by passing skills on to the next generation of farmers. Agriberry’s young worker program for teens age 14 and up invites and inspires youth to learn best farming practices. Anne and her family also engage the community by supporting a wide variety of local food programs and charities throughout the year.

For Anne, one of the best things about her work is hearing customers relate how Agriberry’s fruit tastes like the pure fruit they enjoyed during their childhoods. “Watching the gleam in baby boomers’ eyes as they recall their early years and how important berries and fruit have been to them throughout their lives is rewarding,” she says.
