Mission & Mandate

Mission and Mandate of Ross Farm Museum


Ross Farm Museum is to preserve the physical fabric of the Ross Family Farm, to interpret the story, practices and values typical of farm life in Nova Scotia and to encourage an understanding of the contemporary relevance of traditional agriculture by demonstrating & teaching sustainable agricultural practices.


Ross Farm Museum depicts the authentic experience of a typical 19th and early 20th century working upland family farm in Nova Scotia, as represented by the experience of the Ross family, and it makes connections between those experiences and contemporary life.
