Ross Farm

Babes

New Lambs at New Ross Farm

One of the best times to visit Ross Farm is in the spring.The new babies are heritage breeds of sheep, chickens, pigs, cattle and horses that were common on rural Nova Scotia farms in the 1800`s.

The whole family will enjoy the fresh air and freedom to run and explore. Find the new kittens (usually around the cow barn). Take a ride on a hay wagon.
