Talking Hill Farm

Union, WV

We are small diversified farm in Monroe county, West Virginia. Our main focus is growing and trialing over 120 varieties of heirloom pears without chemicals and selling them at local farm markets. We also make maple syrup in the spring, grow produce, and an assortment of other unique value added products.

Ten years ago we planted out a cider orchard containing 20 different varieties of traditional cider pears and Apples. In 2015 we were licensed as a small Farm Cidery and are now producing very small lots of traditional cider from fruit grown around our farm. We grow our own fruit, dont use chemicals to so, nor do we add sulphites to our product. It is as clean as we can get it.

In the winter I make my travel violins that I invented. Go to wiplstix.com
