About Taylor's Farm Market
Welcome to the area's newest Farm Market. We invite you to come check out what everyone has been talking about! We carry many West Virginia wines, local honey, different jams and jellies, apple butter, sauces from Oliverio’s Peppers in Clarksburg—in fact, we're so local that some of the honey we will be selling are from the bees that were in our apple orchard for pollinating earlier this spring! We have farm fresh produce, bulk candy, pies, organic ice cream, local meats, baking mixes, organic milk, local free range eggs from Gerrardstown, tomatoes, and much more in season. What we don’t raise ourselves, we are buying from local farmers when available so our customers will have different types of produce to choose from when they walk in our market. This is the best our great area produces, and our family is so happy to bring it all together to share with your family.
Taylor's Farm Market is conveniently located right off I-81 in Inwood, WV and opened in May 2014. However, you've seen our family in the Inwood community for a long time: Nearby, owners Bob Taylor and his son Ryan Taylor farm over 1350 acres of row crops and orchards. The Taylor's farm produces over 130,000 bushels of apples, 5,000 bushels of peaches, cherries, plums, and nectarines that are sold in the farm market along with a huge variety of other local produce.
The Taylor's also run a successful local water hauling business swimming pools and more!.
Harvest Video & some pics around our farm
Our spot right off the highway here in Inwood has been a place for wholesome, local food for a long time. In 1920 the site was originally developed into the Demonstration Community Apple Packing School. Many apple producers came here to learn best practices for packing the fruit via 12 orchards that sent 120,000 barrels of apples here. It was also a place to have the fruit inspected and graded before shipping it to market on the Cumberland Valley Branch of the Pennsylvania Railroad. The facility was later the Inwood Farmer's Market, pictured above, although the original building pictured burned in 1955. The current building allows us sample space to share the best locally produced fruit, wines, grocery items, dairy, meat, handmade crafts, and bakery items that West Virginia proudly produces.
The picture below was taken (we believe) in the early 1900s during the apple harvest. Every fall the entire community gathered to help pick the fruit.
