**Now booking 2015**
45 acre property located in rural WV between Parkersburg and Clarksburg. We are not certified, but utilize organic and some bio-dynamic farming practices. Currently we have about 2 acres in production, not including wild ramps, blackberries, black walnuts, sugar maples, all of which require harvesting for market.
This is the farmís second year in production and we have partnered with a local company to grow in volume. Experience in boutique and volume production is helpful, but not required. The farm also participates in one farmers market and manages one. Market days are Wednesday from 3-7 and Sunday from 10-2.
We are happy to offer the first CSA in the North Central WV area this year. The program is almost sold out as of February 2015, and will run for 20 weeks beginning mid May.
This land has laid fallow for many years and there are other needs on the farm besides fieldwork, markets,greenhouse, and the CSA. These needs include, but are not limited to: barn restoration, irrigation, mowing/weed eating, clearing ditches/culverts, building a high tunnel and greenhouse, farm tours, farm dinners, music event,and working the food hub.

A small room with shared bath is available in the house. Tent camping is available if preferred. There is room to park an RV or trailer, but we do not provide this structure. You must bring your own if thatís the accommodation you desire.

Meals are provided and a stipend is given to those that work markets. We are omnivores, but can provide vegetarian meals if needed.

Bonds Creek Farm is dedicated to providing a positive and unique experience for those who visit. This is not your average farm or state. This farm requires a lot of work, patience, and more than six hours a day. Itís a chance to be part of creating an organic farm from the ground up. Highly rewarding and we're a lot of fun too!

Thank you and we hope youíll join us in 2015.
