How many if us dream of moving to the countryside? Come and visit Big Sky Farm - 70 acres of pasture, gardens, and a black walnut woodlot. Stroll around the farm, through vegetable and flower gardens and soak in the joy of country living. Hundreds of Katahdin sheep and Suffolk crosses graze the lush pastures, while a few Holstein calves, barnyard laying hens, and a fish pond enhance the experience. This farmstead dates back to the early 1800s, with the original main barn still standing. The gardens are lush with colourful perennials and annuals and Carolinian varieties of trees have been planted to create variety and beauty. Enjoy!
Katahdin sheep are the main feature at Big Sky Farms. Noted for their colourful hair coat, natural long tails, and distinctive manes of the rams, this special Canadian meat breed doesn't require shearing. But there's more to see here! Check the early 1800s barns, fish pond, and beautiful perennial landscaping.
