Summerseat has served as home to a countless number of farm animals to include horses, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, and even llamas! Many of the current farm animals have come to Summerseat either by donation or as gifts. Birds of flight include geese, ducks, guinnea hens, doves, and a large variety of chickens.
Our wild residents (grazing the fenced in pastures) include American Buffalo and Barbados Sheep, giving Southern Maryland a variety of animals only seen at Summerseat!
At one time, Summerseat had considered serving as an Animal Sanctuary for the local community. However, due to funding constraints, Summerseat is no longer able to care for wounded or sick animals.
