Duane Legg, owner Legacy Foods Market and Bakery, says that cooking 50 gallons of apple butter with Golden Delicious Apples the old-fashioned way, in an open copper kettle, and following a trusted recipe dating back to the 1800’s, is what started his new business venture. In 1995 the family started producing apple butter, and that quickly caught the town’s attention and became a local favorite.
The expansion into bakery items started around four years ago, with Legg adding bread, pepperoni rolls, pies, and more to the menu. Branching out and attending state fairs gave this business a major boost, as requests for his baked goods started coming in. As the pandemic began the requests started coming in even more frequently, and soon it become apparent that a larger facility was needed.
Their location in Indore offers fresh baked breads, donuts, cookies, cakes, pies, and catering services. While they do not offer decorated cakes, they sell Amish deli meats and cheeses, Kunzler and Eckrich brands as well as Amish wedding jams, pickles, and mustards, West Virginia coffee, pickles, honey, molasses, BBQ sauces, and old-fashioned candy.
Legg says the hope for his business is to expand and offer more items to Clay County.
Their hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday, Wednesday, and Saturday, and they are closed on Sunday, Monday, and Thursday.
