Tiller Wheels, Northville Farm Heritage Center, Northville, N.S.
With its fertile plain shielded from the Bay of Fundy by a low-lying but extensive mountain range, the Annapolis Valley has long been the farming center of Nova Scotia. Because of this, there are several places devoted to preserving and sharing that heritage. Although the Ross Farm Museum in New Ross, N.S., probably gets more attention (and about which I’ll post at another time), the Northville Farm Heritage Center in Northville, N.S. (close to Centreville, N.S.), which we came across while on a meandering late Fall drive through the Valley, has a wonderful display of old farm tractors, machinery and other implements situated in an especially scenic area of the Valley. It’s worth making the effort to find!

It is nice to maintain heritage places like this …
Great picture of the tiller wheels!
Dan, thanks! I liked the play of the circles.
Those are good!
I enjoyed your post. I have visited Annapolis Royal before and attended a performance at King’s Theatre. It was nice to be reminded of that Annapolis Valley experience:)
Gwen, that area of Nova Scotia is quite beautiful!
What fun to have colored the equipment so gaily!
Yes, very cheery!
Maybe it’s the farm girl in me but I think that equipment is just beautiful!
Kerry, I’m with you! Old equipment like this has great appeal!
Great images -I’m a fan of old machinery images.
Me too — I’m a sucker for a broke down piece of equipment!
