Beginning Sunny Hollow Farms
In 1996, I had enough of working in the corporate world. I had three children and I worked 80-90 hours a week. Something had to give.
I am a Christian. When you are down on the bottom you finally ask God for help and direction. I waited patiently for the right answer. After I quit, I had several job offers but nothing seem right. Over and over I kept hearing my inner voice say... Jill, I give everyone a talent. What is yours? I remember thinking all I know how to do is cook and can. For as long as I can remember I have found deep satisfaction and happiness in cooking. When I was a small child I followed anyone around to watch them cook, especially my grandmother. When I would think of having a business where I shared cooking and canning with others I felt a peace unlike any other than I have ever felt. I knew this was a right decision.
I am very proud of my heritage and being from West Virginia. West Virginia is rich in history, culture and food. We are a very diverse state. As I have traveled I realize we are ethnic! When I started I thought everyone "canned" and everyone ate brown beans and cornbread. I was wrong. I choose to feature in our products a taste from the past and present.
We offer gourmet food items made in West Virginia.
Sit a spell and have some iced tea.
This is an 1850, 196 acre farm that made up part of the original Starr Settlement in Harrisville.
We have a herd of Spanish and Boer Goats with a few dairy for our own use. Future dairy goat sales are planned.
We will allow hunters to stay on a day to day basis, there is a great abundace of deer and turkey here.
Depending on the time of year, our products will be available.
