At the Farm

The tomatoes are loving this crazy weather and growing like weeds… So we have decided it is time to open up a Pick-Your-Own Canning Tomatoes event until supplies last! The farm will be open from 11 AM-6 PM for those who want to come pick your own tomatoes. Entry is free and it is $10 for a full 5-gallon bucket. Please call 304.997.9656 for any additional questions. Come on down to Green Acres Farm in Rock Cave, WV!

At the Markets

We are now accepting the Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program and WIC vouchers at all of our roadside stand and farmers market locations! Below is a list of what is currently local at our everyday roadside stands that are eligible with the vouchers.
Please note: our roadside stands have a larger selection of in-state produce that is eligible to purchase with the vouchers and out-of-state that is not eligible for purchase until they are harvested locally. However, at our once-a-week farmers markets, we ONLY take WV grown produce where everything you see at the pop-up farmers markets are eligible for purchase with the vouchers. Thank you for understanding!
