Ross Farm Museum

Nova Scotia, Canada

Ross Farm Museum is a small farm that demonstrates historic farming practices. Part of their mission at the museum is to demonstrate sustainable, organic farming practices, including the reuse of manure that is generated by draft horses as well as other livestock on the farm. Barry H. (farm manager) constructed their 3-bay compost system with lumber that had been milled from trees that came down in a big storm. Even with significant temperature swings during the winter months, this system has operated continuously since construction in 2004. They sell approximately 350 bags of compost every year.
