Family Roots Farm is nestled in the hills of Brooke County, WV overlooking Brooke Hills Park. Homesteaded by Henry Hervey in 1770's, the family farm has been passed through the Hervey family for six generations. This sweet sorgum is delicious on pancakes, waffles, hot biscuits and cereals. Use it for baking cookies, beans, cakes, breads and pies. Its pleasant flavor goes with many foods.
Britney Hervey Farris and her husband Charlie Farris established Family Roots Farm in 2012. Both coming from agricultural backgrounds they decided rather than getting part time jobs in the evenings, to plant an acre of sweet corn to sell at a road side stand. The acre of sweet corn has now grown into a full line of seasonal produce including a variety of tomatoes and peppers, potatoes, green beans, cucumbers, squashes and more that they sell at Brooke County Farmers Market.
