All our farm products are produced here on our mountainstead. Though we are not certified organic, we maintain better than organic standards for all our vegetables, fruits, animals and fiber. You won’t find any herbicides, pesticides or chemicals here at Poe Run.

Farm to School

We believe all school children have the right to nutritious locally grown food and to be educated about how to grow their own food. Through a partnership with the West Virginia Department of Education Child Nutrition Program, Randolph County Board of Education, North Elementary and the WV Cooperative Extension office, we are working to bring replicable Farm to School programming to Randolph County.

 

High Tunnel

Through a US Department of Agriculture (USDA) NRCS grant, we been approved to install a 26’x48’ high tunnel to extend our growing seasons and increase our capacity to share our food at the farmers market and schools.

Maple Season

We love maple season as the cool nights and warmer days cause the sap within the trees, we mostly care about the Sugar Maple, start to move from the roots where it is stored over the cold winter up the trunk and into the branches to supply nutrients to grow. By tapping the tree with a small hole, we are able to extract a small amount of this sap, which is hopefully crystal clear “water” and convert it into syrup.

Homestead Renovation

Now that the snow has melted and the temps are warmer, it’s time to replace the siding on Carter House. We’ve ordered about 1500bf of rough-sawn lumber from Helvetia Timberworks. Additionally, we’ll be replacing the oak siding with a bit more forgiving hemlock board and batten and using Zip Systems sheathing to create a rain screen behind. This of course will change the overall look of Carter House, but we think a subtle difference will be welcomed.

Built by the the previous owners, the Carters, with their friends and family during the 1970s and 80s, the homestead reflects the American back-to-the-land movement, in which people left the cities in favor of a simpler lifestyle in a rural environment where they could grow their own food and raise their children.

Suggested Gear

They say in West Virginia if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes. For navigating slopes and uneven terrain, muck boots are essential footwear, especially those with good tread. Margaret swears by LaCrosse brand muck boots, both the winter tall and 3-season mid-calf height.
