Flax is widely known for it's extremely healthy seeds and oil but did you know inside the plants stock are fibers which are used to make linen cloth? Join us this weekend, February 21st & 22nd as Monique demonstrates and explains the steps in which the fiber is extracted, processed and spun to produce a cloth once named "The Cloth of Kings"! We also have tons of snow so bring your snowshoes, sleds and cross country skies to use around the farm!

Ross Farm Museum is a window into the past of Nova Scotia’s rich agricultural history with many things to see and do that the whole family will enjoy.

Established in 1969, The Ross Farm Museum is located on highway #12 in New Ross, Nova Scotia, just 15 minutes from the Lighthouse route, or 25 minutes from the Gloosecap trail. Our Museum is a living, working, farm museum depicting 150 years of agriculture in Nova Scotia. We are a single family upland farm on land originally granted to Captain William Ross. Ross Farm Museum is still being farmed with Oxen, the way it was in the late 1800s. In Rosebank Cottage, the original home of the Ross family built in 1817, you may see food being prepared over an open fire, straw hats being woven, wool or flax being spun, butter being churned, or many other skills being demonstrated that were daily chores for our forefathers, but are now almost lost.

We have a working blacksmith shop where hardware is produced for the farm and we shoe approximately 30 teams of oxen each year. There is also a working stave mill and cooperage producing barrels, the original workshop where products such as butter churns, spoons, buckets and even snow shoes are made. You also might have a chance to take part in a class in our one room school.

During your visit to Nova Scotia, Ross Farm Museum is definitely worth taking the time to visit. It will provide you an opportunity to experience ”An Adventure in Rural Living”.
