KelRae Farm, owned and operated by Randy and Michelle Gulden, has been growing and selling fresh produce since 2001. The property was previously owned and farmed by Randy’s great uncle, Henry M. “Buck” Hazelwood, who sold fresh produce throughout the Williamsburg area for many years. Randy grew up working on Hazelwood Farm and later inherited it from his great uncle.
In 2001, the farm was re-established as KelRae Farm, named after the Gulden’s two oldest daughters (two other daughters came along several years later!). What began as a part time adventure grew into a full time farming career, as KelRae Farm began to build a reputation in the Williamsburg/James City and York County area. Known for locally grown fresh produce, our farm in Toano now sells a wide variety of greens, vegetables, melons, sunflowers, and even fresh free range eggs. Come visit our Market Store on the property and see a real working farm in action while shopping for produce picked fresh daily. You can also find us at the Williamsburg Farmers Market each Saturday in season, as well as through our popular CSA program.
We strongly believe in supporting local farmers and producers, and thus launched our newest venture, the KelRae Farm Food Hub in March 2020. This online farmers market food hub hosts over 40 local partner producers offering everything from freshly grown produce and flowers to seafood, baked goods, soups, and much more! Open year round, you can shop safely and conveniently from home, then pick up orders weekly at the farm. For more information about the food hub visit our website at kelrae.luluslocalfood.com
