Christmas Light Exchange & Christmas Tree Lighting

at the Belnan Branch.
in cooperation with
Efficiency Nova Scotia
Our Tree-Lighting Team>
|Visitors enjoyed fresh, home-made goodies like Christmas cake and gingersnaps, hot cider and candy canes for the kids.||A steady stream of green-minded customers brought their old lights in to be recycled in exchange for new, energy-efficient LED sets.|
|Thanks to local Efficiency NS representative Kelly Little, who racked up an impressive catch of old lights to be diverted from landfills.|
|Unfortunately, turn-out exceeded our expectations and we ran out of lights early; our apologies to any disappointed visitors and we hope to do better in future. Luckily we still had plenty of free treats to share! Still interested in an exchange? - see the Efficiency Nova Scotia Calendar for other scheduled events this season.|

Withrow’s Farm Market and Meat Shop is a family run business. The business was started in the mid 70’s by our parents, John & Mary and Jim & Eloise Withrow. In 1990, theirs sons, Bill, Harold, Bruce & Brian took over management of the farm and farm market business.
Our home farm is located in Rawdon, which is also home to all our families, as well as the location of our first Withrow’s Farm Market.
Jim and John Withrow as young tykes...
In 1985, we opened our second Farm Market in Belnan, and two years
later in 1987 opened our third market in Mount Uniacke. These markets
both include a large fully stocked Garden Centre. Hours of operation are
daily 9:00am – 8:00pm and our season runs from spring to Christmas.
In 2005 we expanded our Belnan location to include a Provincially Inspected Meat Shop. Our Meat Shop features our own naturally raised beef from our home farm in Rawdon. Calves are born from December – February and August - September and then raised to market weight using our own home grown feed, which includes silage, hay and grains. There are no growth hormones used. Our Rocky Knoll Meat Shop features our own naturally raised beef from our home farm in Rawdon. Each year we plan some event at the Belnan Branch and we encourage you to visit our farm at that time.
