College Run Farms is the place to go for purchasing fresh, in season, fruits and vegetables - some are ready to go - and somehow can pick your self - and if you are there when they have homemade ice cream - it is your lucky day!!

My family and I visited here for the first time and absolutely loved it!! The pumpkin patch is huge with a great variety of pumpkins and gourds. They had a fun little corn maze and you cannot leave without getting some of their homemade pumpkin ice cream! A visit worth making. They're open most of the year as new crops... More

This is definitely the place to come if you want to really pick your pumpkins. They give you a map and clippers. Their prices are low and you wouldn't believe the variety of pumpkins. They even have acorn and butternut squashes too. The best part is they sell homemade ice cream, and yes they have pumpkin flavored ice cream!!! Super... More

several times we now stopped at this place and went back to the car quickly, today they had pumpkins more expensive than at Smithfiled farmers market and that was it, some pumpkin pie in the cold display but that was all - where were the farm products??? totally disappointed once again

Hey there! I am just now seeing your review. I am sorry that you have had such a poor experience at our farm during your past visits. I would describe our farm as a pick-your-own farm so I agree if you were rating us based on a farm market. Anyway, thanks for your review. Happy Belated Easter. More

We stopped here just for ice cream. Fresh homemade ice cream daily. It was delicious! And we also had a blueberry loaf. Absolutely amazing!

My three year old and I enjoyed picking a small basket of strawberries. There were some muddy spots that we sloshed through and many of the berries were quite small or rotten. But it was a good price and a fun experience. Thanks!

My experience was tainted, I think, by the amazing strawberries we had collected the week before at Lilly's in Suffolk. I got there at 3 p.m., and as foretold on the CRF website, picking was slow. Whereas after 10 minutes in Suffolk, I had filled a $10 bucket full of fruit that has been the envy of my workmates all... More

Thanks for your review! I am sorry that you had poor picking on the day you visited. We had a challenging season last year due to excessive rain. If you ever visit again, I hope that you will experience better picking. I am glad that the ice cream was a redeeming factor :-) More

This place is the best kept secret!!! Every Spring we grab about 10 gallons of hand picked strawberries and make our own jam, and it lasts us all year. The berries are juicy and sweet!!! We just tried the Super Sweet Corn variety they grow and was very tasty!!! We look forward to the fall pumpkin patch, and if you... More

We were staying in the area and saw the sign for fresh strawberries and had to stop. The pick you own berries were very sweet and flavorful. The seasonal strawberry vanilla ice cream was also very good. The prices are reasonable, the fields are easily accessible and there is a large parking lot. We would love to come back and... More
