Brookdale Farm

Enjoy a day of pick-your-own fun with your group at Brookdale Farm. Groups will have a great time picking juicy strawberries and medium sized pumpkins when they are in season, as well as visiting the farm animals. At the Virginia Beach location, groups can participate in educational programs that aim to teach groups about the industry of produce, the Native Americans who were the first farmers in Virginia, natural resources, animals, plants, renewable resources, and more. Special programs in April and May allow groups to learn about soil, seeds, and the importance of bees.
