We began operating our 150 acre farm in 2011 and became the first Certified Naturally Grown Livestock farm in West Virginia in 2013. We raise 100% grass-fed beef, Western and Chinese medicinal herbs.  Our family garden supplies more than half of our vegetables and our favorite berries, and our flock of chickens supply eggs and an early morning wake-up call for our campers! There are no GMO's, pesticides, herbicides or fungicides used on our farm. We are 3 miles from Terra Alta, a rural town with a locally owned restaurant and a local craft beer brewery featuring an exciting rotating cast of food trucks. We are 20 minutes from Swallow Falls State Park (MD), featuring Muddy Creek Falls, awesome river swimming and gorgeous hiking in an old growth Hemlock forest.   We are also 20 minutes from Herrington Manor State Park (MD) were there is a lake for swimming, fishing, and canoeing.  Cathedral State Park (WV) a virgin Hemlock forest with 400 year old trees about 45 minutes away.  Deep Creek Lake (MD) is 40 minutes away and offers motor boat rentals, Golf, Skiing and swimming. There is skiing, hiking, biking, tubing, rafting, kayaking and much more to explore within 40 minutes of our farm. The best white water rafting on the east coast is 20-40 minutes away. Farm products are available for purchase on-site. Campers can choose to to have a farm to table meal cooked for them as an extra at checkout. We prepare most of our food from scratch using local produce, meat and bulk organic dry goods. We occasionally make yogurts, noodles, simple cheeses, and fermented foods. We welcome campers of all kinds!

Jennifer's property is beautiful! A blessing from God. Our stay was so peaceful. The campsite is just lovely, and well kept.. Apparently it can get extremely cold at night, but if you pack accordingly you should be fine. We loved everything about our stay and definitely will be returning!

Absolutely beautiful organic farm in a secluded pocket of wilderness. The site / view were great . Would recommend to anyone who wants a peaceful night under the stars off the beaten path. A delicious hot /breakfast the next morning was a great perk as well !

Jennifer’s farm was great! We were there with a group of 10, on a yoga retreat. The space was beautiful, the cows are so funny! We also did a farm to table breakfast the last morning and it was super yummy. The main house was closer to the campsites than expected, but we did not feel our privacy was affected in any way. Also, the toilet/shower situation was awesome and super convenient.

Beautiful spot with kind hosts!
This was our first time using HipCamp and it was great. We loved our campsite at Possum Tail! The spot was beautiful, and was well equipped with a fire grate, picnic table, toilet area, and an outdoor shower (such a nice touch!). Jennifer & Brian were great hosts and very kind— and super accommodating when we arrived in the pouring rain! Our dog also loved it!

The space was perfect for our 8-people group and the compost toilet, table and shower made things easier with our young kids. Plus it has de appeal of the farm. Jennifer hand her family were very responsive and really nice.

Peaceful and beautiful
A quiet and peaceful spot. We booked the site adjacent to the pond. The site was spacious and equipped with a picnic table, a trash can, and a fire ring. The privy with a composting toilet was a short distance away, as was the shower and the water spigot. The other campsite is closer to the main house but it was not occupied during our stay so we didn’t see or hear anyone else. We found everything as described and we would gladly camp here again in the future. I should mention that I was traveling by motorcycle and it is necessary to travel almost 2 miles on a gravel road to reach the property. It was definitely manageable but useful to know if you are traveling on two wheels.

Perfect summer camp site!
Pond Place at Possum Tail Farm is beautiful! Jennifer and her family were very kind and welcoming to us. Great amenities (composting toilet, solar shower, fire pit and picnic table). You’re just across a little creek from the neighboring site but still have plenty of space and privacy. Just a short drive to great hiking (Blackwater Falls, Cathedral and Coopers Rock state parks in WV and Swallow Falls/Herrington Manor in MD). Awesome view of the sunset and can hear the bullfrogs and peepers singing at night, wake up to the sound of cows and birds! I was able to make it fine in a small, low profile car with front wheel drive but some of the roads on the way there are unfinished or gravel so keep that in mind!

The property is beautiful and Jennifer and her family were lovely hosts. The ground is level and there was easy access to the composting toilet, a picnic table, and the firepit. We purchased dinner when we booked and the home cooked meal was delicious and substantial.

Staying here was incredible! We felt like we had plenty of our own space, but also had Jennifer and family close by if we needed anything. The composting toilet was convenient, and having a hot shower in the morning was amazing. The land itself is beautiful, and waking up to a view of the farm was something we enjoyed. Though we didn't opt for a tour of the farm, we really wish we would have, and will do so next time! Jennifer and her family were great hosts, attentive to anything we might need to make our stay better. 10/10 would recommend!

This campground is so thoughtful. It's tucked away in some trees so you're out of the wind but you can still see the big beautiful sky. There's a picnic table and trashcan, water and a composting toilet. We were there for only a night, but would definitely come back. It's near to beautiful parks like Swallow Falls.

CHECKS ALL THE BOXES
Staying at PTF with my family and friends was EXACTLY what I was looking. I wanted something that was more “off grid” than the national parks campgrounds, something that had some amenities and was clean, something that was beautiful and not too far away. Possum Tail Farms checked all those boxes. The farm owners were friendly, gracious and love what they do and want every visitor to feel that. I will certainly be back. As a side note, the composting toilet was clean(as far as composting toilets go), maintained well by the owners and the shower was a refreshing bonus after a day of hiking at one the close trails and sites.

My two kids and I returned for our second stay at Possum Farm Camp and once again had a great stay! The farm to table dinner option was delicious and a convenient option for the day of arrival after setting up camp. We spent a day at nearby Swallow Falls State Park and enjoyed swimming in the rapid water. The farm was a great home base to return to, watching the moon rise, hearing owls hooting and roasting s’mores over the campfire. We really enjoyed the outdoor shower experience- there was a two hour window of shower availability in the mornings. The chickens calling out in the morning make sure campers don’t sleep in too late :). I enjoyed watching the diversity of wild birds flying around the gardens as I ate breakfast at the picnic table, a hummingbird hovered nearby to check me out. The farm is a lovely and peaceful place to camp and we hope to return again!

Thank you Jennie
Jennie is a warm, kind host and the farm to table meals are amazing. It’s our first time camping in a while so we forgot to check the weather but Jennie did her very best to make our stay as enjoyable as possible.

Our second time staying and it was a peaceful retreat. Lots of room to stretch out, cook over the fire and hike. Jennie & the fam make an incredible meal and give a great tour - highly recommended! We had lots of questions and were able to interact with the animals and garden. We were also able to use the new shower and it was a welcome accommodation. We loved our stay!

Quiet, secluded, clear sky getaway
Possum Farm is a wonderful getaway tucked away in the mountains. Secluded but yet has a beautiful expansive open space to watch the sunset and stargaze. The hosts were very attentive and made sure we had everything for the night. We had an excellent stay and appreciated having fresh eggs, picking rasberries, enjoyed the fire pit and the soft grass where we pitched our test. The compostable toilet was great. Clean, well designed and comfortable outhouse. The hosts just installed a separate shower with heated water and it was lovely. What a treat to take a hot shower! I’d highly recommend staying at Possum Farm. In addition to the great experience, host Jennifer told us about some of the native plants and fruits and we got to walk around the farm. Was a great learning experience. It’s off the beaten track and well worth it. That’s one of the reasons that makes it so special. It was super quiet and you could see the stars (no city lights). Lovely place and we will be returning!

Peaceful Stay, Room to Breathe
We had a wonderful time at the farm! Even though we were only able to stay a short time, Jennifer & fam were so welcoming. The amenities were clean and everything was so well thought out. I would definitely recommend splurging on the meal. It was delicious and we will remember it for a long time.

This place is magic. Tucked away in a peaceful valley, on a lovely family farm that practices organic and sustainable farming. The host family are welcoming and go out of their way to make you comfortable. Don't miss the delicious breakfast, and be sure to look at the excellent food products on sale.

Jennifer, Brian, and Aidan were awesome! The farm tour was excellent and our hosts answered our many questions. My friend and I got to help with cow fencing, and Aidan helped us track down and hold some chickens. And when we burned through the firewood we had bought (a couple of times!), Jennifer and Brian gladly supplied us with more. We also learned a little bit about composting, Jennifer's medicinal herb garden, and the work they're doing to improve the land.

Great site. A bit close to the house and other site but lots of trees and quiet made it feel secluded. Wonderful host that was extremely helpful and also left us alone to do our thing. Absolutely would stay here again. Beautiful property and surroundings.
