The choice when a buffalo calf’s mother died: the bottle or the bullet?
The buffalo cow was an older animal, but healthy as far as Dick Wildes knew. She’d given birth July 1 at Summerseat, the St. Mary’s County, Md., farm on which Dick keeps about a dozen bison. She nursed her male calf for three days and then, on the Fourth of July, she lay down and didn’t get up.

Summerseat Farm will be open to the public for self-guided tours of the property and guided tours of the manor house the first Sunday of the month, May - October 11:00 am - 3:pm pm.

The history, romance, and elegance of Summerseat Farm will be the perfect backdrop for your wedding or special event!

Summerseat Farm, Inc.


The gazebo, patio and brick-paved walkways are an ideal location for outdoor functions, including weddings.

Bordering the courtyard are the old brick smokehouse and dairy house, along with mature boxwoods, with plenty of open, flat grassy areas to accommodate tents.

The lovely gardens and a sparkling goldfish pond with a soothing, melodic waterfall, offer a unique setting for the charm and grace of a memorable wedding.
