A Realtor-Farmer With the Giving Gene

Darin Greear with his load today.^

Darin Greear, a Realtor with The Palmer Team at Long & Foster and the owner of a farm in Riner is shown with a truck load of home grown veggies destined to become a donation.

This load of 6,800 pounds of turnips and 2,300 pounds of winter squash were delivered to the Radford Worship Center today. The load is just a small fraction of food donations he will make by the year’s end. So far this year he has delivered 30,000 pounds of veggies.

Last year his donations exceeded 60,000 pounds and were sent to over 20 food pantries and shelters. Darin works with Sarah Ramey of Virginia Gleaning Network & the Society of St. Andrew to get his produce in the hands of people who are in need of it.

  1. This is amazing... bless his heart. Inferier beings would wonder why he should give his bounty away, but those with warm hearts know the answer.
