Elk Knob Farm is a stunning 178+/- acre mountain property with 35 acres of meadow and cropland and 143 acres of mature and evolving temperate hardwood forest. Located on Keeney Mountain at 3200 in elevation, the property captures the stunning long views of distant mountains and the valleys below. On a bright blue mountain morning, Peters Mountain in Virginia can be seen nearly 40 miles away.
A nice hiking trail winds through the meadows and through the forest. Early morning or late evening is the perfect time to enjoy a stroll along the trail and let the birds keep you company with their songs. Late summer evenings bring the night sounds of crickets, bullfrogs, cicadas, owls and doves, all within the flashing backdrop of countless lightning bugs.
The cool temperate climate and loamy soils are conducive for the production of grapes, apples and peaches. The pastures may be used for grazing horses, goats, sheep, cattle, llamas and donkeys and all do well on the native bluegrass that grows so well in the region. Pigs would do well here too and love munching on acorns, hickory nuts and crab-apples from the native trees in the fall of the year.
Beekeeping is also a very popular pastime in the area and Elk Knob Farm would be well suited for the production of honey with some well-placed hives.
A portion of the property is also suited for the production of row crops and vegetables. Several nice garden spots are available. Pumpkins will do well here too.
The trees scattered about the farm are very beautiful with some old growth Walnuts and Oaks that started growing in the 1800s. The song birds, deer, rabbits, wild turkey, and squirrels thrive here as the gentle laying land, abundant water and vegetative diversity create the perfect wildlife habitat. The night sky is filled with stars and not light pollution. Adjoining Monroe County is noted as the #1 producer of sheep and Greenbrier County is the #1 cattle producer.
For the water enthusiast the Greenbrier River, New River and 2000 acre Bluestone Lake is a 20 minute drive. The area offers unlimited soft recreational activities including white water rafting, golfing, fishing, camping, hiking, bird watching and rock climbing. Snow skiing at the Winterplace Resort is 45 minutes away. In 20 minutes you can catch the Amtrak train in Hinton and ride to the Greenbrier Resort, Chicago, Washington, DC or New York City.
