Lynn and Dave St.Clair established Swover Creek Farms in 1998, diversifying our family farm to include berries and value added products. Our farm is certified as a Virginia Century Farm. It has been in continuous production by the same family for over 100 years.
On the farm we grow:
Asparagus Sour CherriesHOPS
Blackberries Black Raspberries
Red Raspberries HOPS
We use our berries to make many products such as jams without preservatives or thickening agents, ice cream, tea sweetened with our berry syrup and baked goods.
Of course we also sell fresh berries and have pick your own.
In our inspected kitchen, we also make other value added products using ingredients grown locally.
In 2011 we started making Farm Crafted Sausages using locally raised meats. Today we have over 10 varieties to try.
In the spring of 2013 we planted 14 varities of hops. From these we will determine which grow best in our area. With last years results in, we are planting 125 cascade, 100 nugget, 100 columbus and 100 chinook.
In 2014 we opened our nano-brewery in the old tractor garage. In November of 2015 we moved to our renovated 2,000 sqft barn and installed a 3.5 barrel brew system.
