From each window of the house is a panorama of the
changing seasons and resident wildlife. Watch rabbits and pheasants
on the sunny, South-facing front yard and White-tailed Deer in the
back and in every field. The farm's a bird lover's paradise: Among

well as dozens of Hummingbirds. Virtually every species of NS birds
can be found at the farm.

Scotia flora and fauna including wildflowers, mushrooms, apples,
plums, wild roses and berries- and all critters, large and small.

bordering the back of the property, a small trout brook flowing
beside the house and a third near the West boundary.
The soothing sound of the trout brook meandering beside the house is
a wonderful way to start the day or the last evening murmur competing
with Peepers, Crickets and Hoot Owls. There are small Speckles in the
brook and it's a perfect wonderland for barefoot children to safely
explore nature's mysteries.
