Agriberry Farm
6289 River Road
Hanover, VA 23069

Agriberry Farm and CSA has you covered with some of nature’s healthiest and most versatile fruit ... BERRIES! Berries of all kinds are full of antioxidants that help repair cell damage, are good for the heart, are a great source of fiber and are low in calories. Agriberry, owned and operated by the Geyer family, grows raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, cherries, peaches, nectarines, plums and apples on 25 acres of land in Hanover County. The Geyers grow their strawberries in Chesterfield County. All of Agriberry’s berries have wonderful health benefits: strawberries are high in vitamin C, blackberries are full of antioxidants, raspberries contain heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and blueberries help maintain healthy insulin levels. Agriberry has frozen raspberries and blackberries available all winter long, and their CSA shares are a great way to get your weekly servings of berries. Visit the website to sign up for the CSA, order online, see a list of farmers markets where they sell their fruit, get delicious seasonal recipes and more.

Brandi Battle-Brown, founder of Ms. Bee’s Juice Bar, is distilling her passion and collaborating in innovative ways to share nutritious cold-pressed juices, smoothies and other healthy fare with a wider audience. Inspired by her personal journey toward a focused mindset with more stamina and endurance through a healthy lifestyle, her vision now includes connecting with the youth in her Brookland Park community and beyond to inspire them to adopt healthier eating habits and a love for juices. Battle-Brown’s plant-based beverages have clever names along with delicious ingredients, like The Heart Beet (a juice with oranges, beets, ginger and green apples) and Brown’s Island (a smoothie with cocoa, bananas, cinnamon, nutmeg, almond butter powder and agave). She also offers immunity powerhouse shots like turmeric and ginger. Ms. Bee’s Juice Bar keeps a nutritional facts book on the counter at both of their Richmond locations—114 W. Brookland Park Boulevard and in The Valentine at 1015 E. Clay Street—so customers can learn more about the nutritional value of their various add-ins, including antioxidant, hormone-balancing and cleansing ingredients such as chia and flax seeds, sea moss and local honey.
