While not quite as ambitious as larger living-history farms in the area, Old
Maryland Farm still delivers where it counts: with 70-odd animals,
including goats, sheep, chickens, rabbits, peafowl, turkeys, a hog, a donkey, a cow and
a pony, all in an easily negotiated semicircular arrangement of pens. Produce
and herb gardens round out the agricultural attractions. The staff is energetic
and welcoming and the farm offers a relatively inexpensive birthday party
package. Watkins Regional Park also features a miniature train, a miniature golf
course and a (full-size) carousel and nature center.
-- John Kelly and Craig Stoltz Words to the wise: "Livestock Lunchtime" is the best time to
be here. Visitors can assist in feeding the animals Tuesday through Sunday at noon.
