Bare Necessities Farm
[FONT=times new roman,times]Hollywood, MD 20636[/FONT]

BARE NECESSITIES FARM is a 15-acre, mini-farm established in 1998. It is located an hour outside of the nation's capitol, Washington, D.C., in beautiful So. Md where the Potomac River in the west and the Patuxent River in the east meet and pour into the Chesapeake Bay.
At Bare Necessities Farm, we specialize in breeding (and sometimes showing) bantam and standard chickens in several breeds, muscovies, Chinese cresteds & collies. Many other animals also roam and enjoy the farm, including horses (Tenn. walkers and paints), mini horses, peafowl, geese, ducks, cats, and even an emu!

Please visit our website, currently located at We have loads of photos and text describing our place and what we do. We also have a "sale" page that lists items and animals currently available for sale.
If you're interested, I am also a free-lance artist dabbling in several mediums. I'd love it if you'd visit my art studio at

Thanks and I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone on BYC!
