Yankey Family Farm. A fresh market produce farm located in Prince William County, Virginia.   We grow a variety of produce which can be purchased in the summer at our Glenkirk Rd roadside stand or through our CSA subscription program.  We also operate a pick your own strawberry patch in the spring and a pick your own pumpkin patch in the fall.  In addition to the pumpkins we have other fun farmyard activities including a cow train and corn maze.  We are one of the few “pumpkin patches” in Northern Virginia where you can actually pick your pumpkin out of the field where it grew.
