Active Life Farm

Welcome to ActiveLife Farm

The impetus for ActiveLife Farm was inspired by a love of the outdoors and a desire for wholesome home-grown food.

The farm is situated southwest of Folly Mountain in Colchester County, Nova Scotia, and is home to a flock of registered North Country Cheviot (NCC) sheep and heritage breeds of poultry. We also maintain a flock of Cheviot sheep on an island in southwest Nova Scotia.

The home flock of sheep are raised primarily on pasture. A pastured free-range system contributes to a healthy, stress-free lifestyle for animals. The island flock thrive on grasses, kelp and seaweed throughout the year.

Border collies are raised and trained at the farm, adhering to a traditional relationship between shepherd, sheep, and dog. They are useful for moving the home flock from pasture to pasture and essential for gathering sheep on the islands.

Heritage breed chicks are available from March to September each year.

North Country Cheviot lambs are available in autumn-winter each year.
