From its earliest days, the Farm has been home to a variety of animals and livestock. We don’t know what animals and livestock the early Taylors or George and Willie Bray kept when they lived on the Farm. Before the advent of mechanical tractors or trucks, it would have been impossible to run a farm without horses and draft animals. Beyond those, it’s likely, and there is some archaeological evidence, that they kept chickens, cattle, pigs and, maybe, sheep. Regardless, we have our own livestock now. So let’s introduce you to them.

When you come to the farm,


Since at least the late 1940s, sheep were raised here. Robert Williams Sr. raised prize sheep when he owned the farm. If you have been to the farm lately, you know the farm still has a ram and several ewes. So come visit Patch and the lady sheep whenever you like.


Surely you know that there are more than sheep here. In the early 2000s, David Sears of Nobscusset Farm in Dennis donated Scottish Highland Cattle to the Farm. Chloe has quickly become a favorite of visitors. She is pretty to look at but with those long horns, you do not want to get too close.


Dancing Goats

 Dusty has been part of the farm’s welcoming committee for a number of years. He is one of the friendliest guys at the farm. Dusty just loves it when you rub his nose. George and Henry are our newest goats. Just added to our farm family. Remember, no matter how much you might want to, DON’T feed them or any of the other animal


Sam and Nestor were acquired for the Farm through the generosity and efforts of Bill McClennan a few years ago. They are shier than George, Henry and Dusty so they won’t always come up to the fence when they see you. They are fun to watch when they chase one another around the pasture.Georg


And then there are the chickens. Over the years, we’ve had several varieties of hens: Wyandottes, Cuckoo Marans (love the name!), Light Brahmas and Easter Eggers (another cute name) which lay lovely blue eggs. Look for our loud and feisty rooster. Just be careful when he’s around.

Come visit the Farm! The animals would love to see you.
When you come, remember ...

100% of farm revenue goes for the maintenance of the farm. Most of that is for the care and feeding of the animals.
So your donations and membership in Taylor-Bray Farm are a great help.
