For many people, the idea of living on and operating a small farm is highly compelling. Being connected to nature, interacting with animals, growing crops, and generally engaged in a physically and mentally stimulating lifestyle is in itself a rewarding experience.
Here in Southwestern Nova Scotia we are seeing a resurgence in interest as old farmsteads are reactivated and new, young families take up the challenge of farming. Interest in organic farming is increasing as are the opportunities in value-added processing of goods produced.
Farmer's markets are once again a regular part of the social fabric and there is growing awareness and focus on the need for a healthy diet. Where better to find those healthy foods then locally produced right here!
Land is both affordable and available, the region proven suitable for a wide array of farming activities, and you'll finally get to drive a tractor!
So join us and together we'll Grow Southwest Nova Scotia.
