We take you back to a simpler time where the children milk cows by hand, where the oxen are seen working in the fields and the sound of a rooster can be heard around the farm! Experience farming as it was all across Nova Scotia by spending a wonderful day here that the whole family will enjoy! For the few hours you spend at Ross Farm you don’t just experience Nova Scotia’s farming history, you live it!

We loved this place! We took my daughter, 13 and were hesitant that it would be geared too young for her. She thought it was great! There was ample parking. You walk in through the museum store. We used the museum pass for admission. There...More

We stopped here for about an hour and a half last August. Gift shop is quite nice and the set up of the farm is relatively easy to get around. Some hilly areas, and walking trails around the property. Plenty of sheep and other animals...More
