HUNTING CLOSED ON ANDREW S. ROWAN MEMORIAL FARM IN MONROE COUNTY

State property owned by the West Virginia Department of Agriculture known as the Andrew S. Rowan Memorial Farm, encompassing approximately 650 acres, is no longer a public hunting area as of October 16, 2007.

The land has been used for public hunting in the past in relation to a lease agreement with the Department of Natural Resources.  However, that lease agreement is no longer in effect and the property is now under a long-term lease with the Sweet Springs Management Company, LLC, for the development of a resort that will feature such amenities as golf, skiing, equestrian facilities and a spa.

For more information about Sweet Springs Management Company, visit www.oldsweetsprings.com or www.sweetsommer.com.

 



The West Virginia Department of Agriculture protects plant, animal and human health through a variety of scientific, regulatory and consumer protection programs, as mandated by state law. The Commissioner of Agriculture is one of six statewide elected officials in West Virginia. Currently, Commissioner Gus R. Douglass is the longest-serving agriculture commissioner in the nation.
