Skipper farms is a family owned produce farm working to satisfy your fresh eco friendly needs. Dad and Grandpa have been farming and marketing their sweet corn and tomatoes since the 1940's and have been complemented by customers thousands and thousands of times for the wonderful fresh taste and quality. There policy is to market only the best and the freshest for all to thoroughly enjoy. We continue to follow their guidelines for integrity and pride of quality. We first opened in Chesapeake at the original Red Shed on Battlefield Blvd. near the Chesapeake hospital in 1982, subsequently we operated the Green Thumb Market on South Battlefield on the road to N.C., after that we farmed a u-pick strawberry farm on S. Centerville in Hickory area (we no longer have that location ). We currently farm just southeast of the Chesapeake Great Bridge Area. Our variety of homegrown fruits and vegetables includes everything from melt-in-your-mouth green beans and candy-like cantaloupes, to numerous types of full flavored and savory tomatoes, luscious strawberries, super fresh corn on the cob, tree ripened juicy peaches, and sweet mouth watering watermelons. Complementing these delicious items are other farm products such as free range eggs, honey, apple butter, apple cider,peach cider,bedding plants, and plants and flowers. The Skipper family is dedicated to offering superior customer service and the highest quality products! We eat what we grow and therefore avoid the use of synthetic pesticides and herbicides, genetically modified (GMO) seed, antibiotics, or growth hormones in our practices. We use naturally grown production methods. With several locations in Hampton Roads, we are convenient to everyone and we aim to please! Be sure to like us on facebook, please ! Join our CSA now and show support for your locally grown family farm that offers your family the best tasting and freshest healthy eating choices.
