Discover the Roots of the Appalachian Experience

In the heart of the Greenbrier Valley, agriculture isn't merely a livelihood—it's a profound connection to nature and a cornerstone of the communities and the people who live here.  

Embark on a hands-on journey that begins on the farm and ends with a new appreciation for what it means to be a part of something bigger than yourself.

Unearth the Valley’s Farming Heritage

In the Greenbrier Valley, agriculture isn't just a way of life—it's a way to connect with nature, support local economies, and indulge in farm-fresh goodness. From multi-generational, family-owned farms to large scale agricultural enterprises, what we know as farming can take many shapes.

Sunset Berry Farm, located in Alderson, is a family-owned and operated produce farm specializing in strawberries and corn.

White Oak Blueberry Farm planted its first blueberries in the fall of 1993 and has been improving its crop every year since. In addition to raising blueberries, it raises and grows much of its own food, including milk cows, beef cows, sheep, vegetables, fruits, and chickens, with some extras to sell.

Sunshine Farm & Gardens is an arboretum, botanic garden, garden center, retail and wholesale nursery with over 10,000 different flowering plants, located at 3,650 feet altitude in Renick.
