About Us

Alvis Farms cows wheat barns corn

We are proud to have been a working dairy farm in Goochland since 1965, and have been farming the land for even longer. Community outreach, and education, is something we strive to do as often as possible. We’re excited to open our farm up for tours and agritourism events, which will help us continue to farm and be an active part of keeping Goochland rural.
