Manning Family Farm started in the mid 1960s with Dean’s parents, Malcolm and Gail, purchasing the present farm location in Falmouth. Over time, the farm has developed into a mixed farm operation consisting of greenhouses, vegetables, grain and beef cattle. Dean and Catherine returned to the farm in 1997 after completing their respective degrees in Plant and Animal sciences at the NSAC and then working off farm for a period of about 10 years. The farm has evolved over the years from an on-site farm market to sell the farm grown produce directly to the consumer to now wholesaling to local markets. Over the years we have also been able to extend our growing season to almost year round production. Our commercial and purebred beef herd compliments the vegetable production with approximately 80 breeding females and 8 bulls.
