Livestock

Prince George’s County livestock producers provide high quality meats, eggs, dairy and fiber. Most farmers graze their animals on pasture, a practice that is both healthy for the animals and the environment. Whether you are looking for lamb chops or alpaca fiber products, our producers have exceptional products to suit even the most discerning tastes.

In addition, several of our Prince George’s County farmers are in the Southern Maryland Meats program. Program participants must meet specific standards for meat quality and humane animal treatment.

AlpacaLane Criations LLC

Experience a woman veteran owned and operated alpaca farm where the alpacas are the "stars" of each and every farm tour. Visitors immediately feel the tranquility that comes with the alpaca farm life. Alpacas are shorn once a year; their fiber is then processed into high quality roving for spinning or felting or into high quality alpaca yarn. The yarn is then used to make super soft, warm, and hypo-allergenic clothing, scarves, hats, gloves, and other items. Our farm store contains many examples of these fine alpaca products.

We strive to organize events that are fun for the community and instructive about the amazing alpacas including their role on the farm, uniqueness as livestock, and great personalities. Contact us if want to visit the farm or host an event at a unique venue. (703) 401-1793.

P.A. Bowen Farmstead

P.A. Bowen Farmstead is a small multi-species farm that uses animals to work and improve the land by harnessing the unique talents of each: the heritage-breed pigs clear wooded areas of the farm to create silvopasture for the dairy cows; the cows are rotationally-grazed each day and provide milk to make award-winning artisan cheeses; and chickens come behind to clean up after everyone by scattering the patties and eating the fly larvae.

This traditional method of farming requires no external inputs of chemicals or fertilizer, retards growth of pathogenic organisms, and vastly improves the soil. The leftover whey from cheese making is fed to the pigs and chickens, which adds amazing flavor to the meat. We use no soy, corn or other GMOs in our own mix of locally-sourced organic grains that we grind here on the farm. Our animals are exceptionally healthy and happy because they are allowed to be and act as they are meant to. Be sure to check out our website for farm tour info and classes.
