Spring Valley Farm and Orchard
Spring Valley is a family owned and operated farm just outside of Romney, West Virginia. Owners Eli and Misty have 345 acres, which they manage by using the fundamentals of integrated pest management and sustainable agriculture. Nearly 250 acres of their farm consist of orchards, allowing them to grow such favorites as peaches, plums, cherries, and apples. As most farms go dormant in the winter, theirs stays green with the help of eleven heated greenhouses. Eli and Misty are further able to keep up production in winter by specializing in using the Earth’s solar heat to grow crops like beets, leeks, Brussels sprouts, and carrots all season.
