History of Legend Hills
      Legend Hills Orchard is owned and operated by Richard Hoar, his four children, ten grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren.  The family manages approximately 340 acres of farmland.  The original 168 acres have remained in the family for over one hundred years. Legend Hills Orchard was one of the featured farms in the book, Licking County Century Farms published by the Licking County Ohio Soil and Water Conservation District in 2008.  In 2015, Richard Hoar was inducted into the Licking County Agriculture Hall of Fame for his contribution to agriculture. The family business has grown from a grocery route and road side stand to a large retail farm market.  At Legend Hills today, apples, peaches, strawberries, plums, asparagus, squash, tomatoes, pumpkins, and Christmas trees are grown and harvested each year.  Approximately Nineteen varieties of apples, 9 varieties of peaches, 2 varieties of strawberries, 2 varieties of asparagus, and 6 varieties of pine trees are grown and harvested by hand. 

     Approximately 95% of all fruits and vegetables raised are sold through the Legend Hills Orchard Farm Market near Utica in Licking County Ohio.   Apples, peaches, and strawberries are sold ready-picked or pick-your-own and asparagus is sold ready-cut or cut-your-own.  Pine trees are sold ready-cut, ready-dug, cut-your-own or dig-your-own for Christmas or landscaping needs.  Legend Hills also presses and markets its own fresh apple cider and is an outlet for garden produce from neighboring farms in harvest season.
