Fresh Nova Scotian Lobster

Meet the Farmers – Millferns Holsteins, Lower Onslow, NS

Owned by the Fred and Ann Hamilton, the farm has been in the family since 1760. Talk about deep Nova Scotian roots. Although the farm name is Millferns Holsteins, cattle are not their primary focus. Millferns Hoslteins is one of a number of thriving sheep farms in the province. Sheep farming has been part of our agricultural history for hundreds of years dating back to early Scottish settlers who found our climate created the ideal pastureland needed for grazing.
