About
Sunset Berry Farm & Produce

Sunset Berry Farm & Produce produces fruits & vegetables of the highest quality - Promoting the consumptions of healthy foods and improving the communities well-being.

Our Farms Beginning

Kent Gilkerson is a third-generation strawberry grower from Beauty Moutain in Fayette County, West Virginia.

After originally moving to Alderson, West Virginia to work at the Federal Prison – in 2010 Farmer Kent & Jennifer bought a 60 acres plot that was undeveloped. Located on top of a beautiful flat mountain, the land was being cleared for strawberry productions – which would help pay for the property. The farm consists of:

  • 3 acres of strawberries,
  • 3 high tunnels with rotating crops of strawberries, tomatoes, green beans, peppers & cantaloupes,
  • and more!

In 2020, Sunset Berry Farm was hit with a late freeze – causing the loss of the entire strawberry crop. To try and help recover from the loss of all of the strawberries, the farm introduced sunflowers – which quickly became a visitor favorite.

With award-winning strawberries that are known as “The sweetest in the state of West Virginia”, Sunset Strawberry farm became the official host to the annual West Virginia Strawberry Festival in 2021.

The festival is held every year on Labor Day.
