Hinton’s Orchard & Farm Market is a family farm growing fresh fruits, flowers, and vegetables and providing fun family experiences. Fresh local produce is available April through November at both Hinton’s Orchard locations – the farm market in Hodgenville and the market in Elizabethtown. In addition to fruits, flowers, and vegetables, customers find a selection of homemade baked goods, gardening supplies, gifts, gourmet foods, and much more.
The beginnings of Hinton’s Orchard trace back eight generations to the time that Jeremy Hinton’s first ancestors arrived in LaRue County and began to cultivate the land.
Jeremy and Joanna Hinton started growing apples and peaches in 2002 upon leasing a LaRue County business institution, the Tommy Bennett Orchards. Since that time, Hinton’s has expanded into vegetables, berries, flowers, Christmas trees. The farm also produces burley tobacco and soybeans. Visitors can enjoy agritourism opportunities which include picking your own strawberries and pumpkins, the large play area known as Hinton’s FarmLand, hay rides, corn mazes, and farm festivals celebrating Hinton’s main crops – strawberries, peaches, apples, and pumpkins.
Hinton’s Orchard is a member of the Kentucky Proud program which promotes Kentucky grown and produced products and Kentucky Farm Bureau’s Certified Farm Market Program which promotes the state’s premier roadside farm markets. Hinton’s Orchard has been recognized by Elizabethtown families as the area’s top pumpkin patch and recently by Kentucky Living magazine’s readers as Best in Kentucky for Agritourism sites.
The Hinton family works hard to supply your family with beautiful plants and fresh, delicious fruits and vegetables. Jeremy and Joanna and their three children – Jacob, Joslyn, and Joel – look forward to visiting with you at one of the markets soon!
