Since its creation more than 125 years ago, the Central Experimental Farm has gained international recognition as a centre for agricultural research. However, Ottawa’s Farm is loved as a place to pat the animals, smell the flowers and just forget about the city only minutes away.
But a farm is also people, and Helen Smith introduces us to the men and women who lived and worked here over the last century, and their children, “Farm kids,” who grew up in a unique rural community. The many beautiful photographs by Mary Bramley also show why the Central Experimental Farm has such a warm spot in Ottawa’s heart.
The Friends of the Farm are pleased to offer this classic story of Ottawa’s Farm and its “Farm kids” by Helen Smith and Mary Bramley. It is now in its third printing and is a must-have for all history-lovers and those who wish to know more about the Farm and its people.
