At the Farm

We have SO many amazing peppers in the field! We have an abundance of sweet banana, hot inferno, bell, jalapeno, serrano, cubanelle, and cherry bomb peppers that are sweeping the markets by storm. Want to pre-order by the bushel? Make an order to one of our roadside stands or farmers markets nearest you.

We also are starting to get in our delicious heirloom tomatoes and cherry tomatoes. You know when these colorful varieties come in, it means West Virginia produce is at its peak!

At the Markets

Have you ever tried a purple bell pepper? They have been making their mark at the farmers market, surprising everyone by their beautiful color and deliciously sweet taste! What even is a purple bell pepper? These Purple Beauty bell peppers are a non-GMO, heirloom variety that have been around for over 7,000 years.1 Their striking appearance is not the only thing attractive about them, but their sweet, crisp taste is what make these peppers a home run. They would be a delicious addition in your kitchen, whether eaten raw or cooked to make a beautifully captivating dish!
