Byrnside Branch Farm

Union, WV

Our family farm was purchased in March 1982. During that time the farm was a full operational dairy farm. The name was Dima Ja Diary, named after our registered cattle. Dima Ja Diary ran for almost 18 years before it switched over to agritourism. When the diary operation ceased and cattle left we changed the farm name to Byrnside Branch Farm because of the branch that runs through it. We began growing pumpkins, gourds, potatoes and started the corn maze with many activities during the fall season. Then, approximately eight years ago we began growing vegetables. In extended season, we utilize 3 high tunnels. We offer pick your own produce as well as selling through a local online farmers market that delivers to Charleston, WV once a week. Along with growing vegetables and doing the corn maze, we also farm a small beef cattle herd. Over the years our farm has also raised pigs, cattle, horses, lambs, and rabbits.

Hours: We sell to the online Monroe Farm Market customers year round offering vegetable sales on the farm any evening for pick your own. Please call ahead for your reservation!

Our fall season opens Mid September everyday through early November. We take appointments for field trips during the weekdays and are open to the public Friday-Sunday every weekend.

Tour through the pumpkin patch and around our beautiful farm. The tractor driver also gives educational information on farming procedures and growing techniques!
What we offer: 10-Acre Corn Maze, 2-Acre Corn Maze, Hay Maze for the Kiddies, Twilight Maze, Seasonal Produce, Pick Your Own Pumpkin, Farm Tractor Tours,
Mini Horse-Drawn Wagon Tours, Barrel Train Tours for Kids, and Farm Animals.
