My wife and I moved to my family’s sixth generation farm two years ago after living in Calgary for six years. We work the farm now with my dad and we have 19 cattle, 5 chickens, a dog and a cat. We also run a small 78 acre maple syrup operation that is going to grow in the coming years. We also both work two full time jobs in Halifax, so we have to balance work with the farm. Our goal is to be self sufficent and move to more of a smaller scale animal operation while “growing” more in our crop and maple syrup production.
