Nova Scotia Farms. Are there any small farms left ? Yes but you have to know where to look and who to contact.

Nova Scotia Farms

Nova Scotia farms for sale are becoming increasingly hard to find. The past two generations have seen the small Nova Scotia farm be increasingly marginalized by consolidation of the dairy and poultry operations and the demise of beef and pork by importation from cheaper western and foreign producers. Dairy and poultry farmers have prospered under government and industry controlled marketing quota’s while other agribusiness’s have seen viability and profitability being undermined by the importing of most products from outside Nova Scotia’s borders. While many farms have been taken out of production much of Nova Scotia’s farm land is under pressure from urban sprawl. While there are many arguments solutions are few.

The good news is the resurgence of demand for home grown products and the success of many local farm markets. This has given small producers the opportunity to take their product from home to the consumer cutting out the miserly giants like sobey’s and superstore who dominate the local grocery trade. Consumers are becoming ever willing to pay premium dollar for home grown, organic or free range product. They are being more concerned with what they eat. As that movement grows and is finally being promoted by government we may see the resurgence of the small family farm so long part of the landscape in this scenic province.

Many baby boomers grew up on these small family farms and would love to spend their retirement years enjoying a quiet rural lifestyle.

You also often see adds for Nova Scotia horses for sale as many small horse farms are enjoyed by many horse enthusiasts and large indoor arenas have popped up in rural communities surrounding the capitol city of Halifax. Many Nova Scotia’s live and work in the city and board their horses at many of these small horse farms. There are still properties available being more affordable the farther out you go from Halifax. There is one real estate company near Halifax that has specialized in this type of property for over 30 years. Many of their listings are exclusive and cannot be found on the local MLS ™ system. You can view all of their listings at feel free to check it out.

Hi Luke,
I have to get used to calling you that. I enjoyed your article about Nova Scotia farms and the shifts in the farm based economy. It captured my attention because I spent some years in biblical studies in Canada, and had the privilige of traveling to Nova Scotia and speaking to a large convention of young people while I was a student
in Eastern Ontario. Glad to know that some re-grouping is taking place by local farmers and the demand for the farm setting by young people who want that kind of life style.
