When it comes time to add or replace fencing for your farm animals, you need not sacrifice style for safety.  Farm fences come in a variety of styles to compliment your farm or farmette. And when you live in an area with as much rural beauty and diversity as Maryland, having a farm fence that compliments its surroundings is an attractive option.

Popular Farm Fencing Options

One of our most popular farm fence options is cross buck farm fencing. Cross buck farm fences offer an added element of design that many farm owners like as compared to 3 or 4 rail fencing.

Standard rail fencing, particularly white vinyl rail fencing is also a widely popular option. While vinyl fencing has a higher upfront cost than wood fencing, it never needs painting or staining, and can easily be cleaned.Three Rail Ranch Fencing in Maryland

Depending on the livestock that you are looking to enclose, you may also choose to add metal mesh fencing to your cross buck or rail fencing to prevent animals from getting loose. Goats in particular have a tendency to wander! In order to keep them safe and secure, additional metal mesh fencing may be a good idea.

Safety Check Your Farm Fence Regularly

A few times a year, it is a good idea to walk your property’s fence line to check for any needed repairs. Harsh winters with heavy ice and snow can cause issues, as well as animals who like to chew!
