Karl’s Farm is a small, family run farm. We use natural and sustainable methods to grow a wide variety of vegetables and herbs. We also raise free range chickens and have farm fresh eggs for sale whenever the hens co-operate.
In 2008 we added two beautiful Dexter heifers to our farm. Tessie and Velvet have settled in nicely and are becoming calmer, although they have horns and know how to use them. In June 2009 we bought a wonderful Dexter bull, Royal, as a mate for our heifers and it seems they are quite taken with him. Two calves were born on the farm in March 2010 – Achilles and Kizzie. On Christmas Eve they went to their new home in Virginia where they immediately caused trouble by escaping. I think they could hear Tessie and Velvet bellowing for them! Everyone settled back down and Tessie presented us with another heifer calf, Juno, on June 6th, 2011. In November 2011 we sold our small herd to a wonderful family who were looking to start raising Dexters here in Southern Maryland. We miss them terribly, but they are in good hands and I know will be a much loved foundation herd.
Garfield – our ginger Tom cat – continues to grow and although he pretends to be a house cat for a good 12-14 hours a day, he still patrols the property and has a voracious appetite for mice, voles and other vermin.
