Possum Tail Farm

Terra Alta, West Virginia

Our 150 acre farm has been in the family for four generations. We raise grass fed and finished beef, goat, chicken and eggs on pasture.

Our Mission Statement: We are a family-owned and operated farm. We plan to preserve this opportunity for future generations. We strive to make discerning use of inputs, maintain excellent land stewardship practices, and produce-high quality products for consumers. We value rural life and are committed to enriching our community and culture

Our philosophy

Focus on creating and maintaining an environment that is safe and healthy for our family, our neighbors, and our animals

Focus on improving and maintaining soil health; promoting natural organism diversity; minimizing soil erosion and nutrient leaching

Managing Pasture and land to improve biodiversity

Diversify our land use, creating and maintaining different landscapes: pasture, woodland, and wetlands

Seek practices that reuse our resources (buildings, land, equipment) for multiple purposes

Minimize the use of external energy: fossil fuels, electricity, etc.

Avoid chemical inputs: artificial fertilizers, pesticides, medications

We felt that the CNG certification would help our customers know that we are not just sort of natural, we believe in upholding a clear set of standards set by a third party. I hope that the CNG label and inspection process will give them confidence in the way we treat our animals and the land even if they can't visit the farm. (But we love it when they do visit!)
