What's Happening at the Farm?
To keep the community safe, Maybury Farm is currently closed for the season until 5/29/2020. This includes all tours - if you have booked a tour or party, we will be in touch with you to refund any deposits that have been paid. The farm will remain closed until the "Stay Home, Stay Safe" order is lifted.
If you are able, please help the farm by donating to help feed and care for the animals while the farm remains closed.
We wish for all to remain safe during these uncertain times. Please practice the social distance rules, stay home, stay 6 feet apart and wash your hands frequently.
We're looking forward to seeing you at the farm soon!
Please be aware that, to keep our animals and visitors safe, a new fencing system was installed.The white wire on the inside of the animal paddocks has a intermittent, low voltage current running through it to discourage the animals from destroying the fences - please interact with the animals at the black gates. Thank you!
Continuing our commitment to an educational mission, Maybury Farm is proudly raising Heritage Breeds.
We have registered Jacob sheep and 3 new lambs born this spring!
Heritage breeds are traditional livestock breeds that were raised before industrial agriculture became
a mainstream practice. They were carefully selected and bred over time to develop traits that made them well-adapted to local environments. Traditional, historic breeds retain essential attributes for survival and self-sufficiency – fertility, foraging ability, longevity, maternal instincts, ability to mate naturally, and resistance to diseases and parasites.
Jacobs coats are white with black spots, and they most often have two sets of horns - although they
may have only two or up to six. Both sexes are horned.
Be sure to check them out on your next visit to the farm. You can also purchase their wool, or roving,
in our general store for spinning or crafts.
