Activities: View our beef herd, pick a pumpkin from our patch (if ready for harvest).

 

Fresh local produce and our Naturally Raised Beef available for purchase. Happy to share information on Agriculture with you.

 

Our fifth year participating in the NS Open Farm day saw a steady stream of traffic through the parking lot, along with brisk business inside...
We moved some of the beef cattle right up next to the barn for the day, which caught the eye and camera of Global Television reporter.
Open Farm Day is great for families with kids; these young visitors enjoyed meeting the beef herd, petting Cassie the Calf, and of course an ice cream break!
Our 'info lounge' provided a warm spot to relax, enjoy hot coffee or tea and take photos.  Visitors could sample our products, browse the displays to learn about our farm and even pick up a few souvenirs when signing our questbook.
We're proud of our 20 years of farming; various displays promote how we've developed the land over the decades, as well as our family of fine suppliers.
Sarah and other staff were kept busy serving local customers and taking 'come from aways' on tour, visiting the livestock and the various buildings.
Our 'pick a pumpkin' display was popular... but the definite star of the day was Cassie the Calf! 'Hey, where did everybody disappear to?"
