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!

Pond Place
Beautiful drive and landscape. The hosts were helpful. There are 2 site very close together so I would check to see if a site is booked with big group. I was not prepared for that

Pond Place
We had a wonderful time at Pond Place. Directions were clear, communication quick and the welcome was friendly but not intrusive. We were left to our own devices with just the right amount of contact with our hosts. Our pitch was freshly mown and the facilities (shower and loo) were excellent; clean, novel and environmentally friendly. We would highly recommend and would stay again! Thank you pond place!

Wonderful little spot. Cleaner toilet and shower then any state campsite you'll find and the highlight for us was Bishop the farm dog

Possum Farm Camp
We had an amazing time at Possum Tail Farm! It was absolutely beautiful, private, solid amenities and really helpful hosts. There is even a super nice farm dog to hang out with. He was a great perk. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a peaceful time away on a beautiful piece of land.

A beautiful spot in nature
Jennifer and Brian were excellent hosts! They made sure we had a way to contact them if we needed anything, and were very responsive. They only stopped by twice in the evenings just to be sure we didn't need anything like firewood (which I appreciate!) . The farm allows you to feel secluded and enjoy the beautiful views on their farm. I recommend this place to anyone looking to get away from the city and enjoy the silence of the farm. Only downside is the 2 mile stretch of gravel road to get to the farm, but that's just WVA!

Possum Farm Camp
Jennie and Brian's camp sites at Possum Tail Farm's is truly wonderful. Nestled in the rural West Virginia, their farm let us escape from the hustle and bustle of the metropolitan areas. They offered a great farm-to-table meal that we enjoyed on our first night there. The facilities they offer (running water, bathroom, and hot shower) are all clean, and well taken care of. We helped ourself to a tour of their farm and we were promptly greeted by all their farm animals, including their cows. All of their animals are super friendly, especially their cats, Chevre and Asiago, as well as their new farm dog, Bishop. We are so grateful that Jennie and Brian shared their farm with us for a few nights!
