This year, our experiential farming tour will take us on a trip through Gaspereau to Grande Pré and back again in honour of our French theme. We’ll start by visiting one of Nova Scotia’s most well-known fibre farms where heritage breed Cotswold sheep are the stars (just don’t tell Mittens). Then, we’ll move into the future of dairy farming when we visit Biggs Farm to meet Farmer Bill, his cows, and the robots who milk them. We’ll wrap up the day with a view of the famous Grande Pré dykelands. Dykes were created here by Acadian settlers centuries ago, and are now maintained and governed by the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture. We’ll enjoy a visit to the Landscape of Grande Pré Viewing Park and learn about the history of the dykelands, and their importance to the farmers of yesterday and today. Our last stop of the day will be a visit to Hennigar’s Farm where we’ll enjoy a light lunch and a tour. We look forward to seeing you on this family-fun adventure!
