Everything’s coming up roses in Chamcook, New Brunswick – literally!
New Brunswick truly has flowers everywhere. You will notice it right away on your drive across our beautiful province.
Right here at the Chamcook Schoolhouse property there are wild roses and blueberries blooming all summer long. In June you’ll be greeted by purple and pink Lupins in all the fields and along the roads, and in the autumn there are many apples on our many varieties of heirloom apple trees.
Built in 1842 the Chamcook Schoolhouse will not disappoint! First serving the families of Chamcook for many years it then became a place for fishermen to repair their nets. In 1977, the Schoolhouse was picked up and moved onto a new foundation back from the road and made into a summer home by the Magnusson family.
We have had the pleasure of meeting some students that went to this school once upon a time! They came to our yard sale! We heard some good stories and even met a man who got the strap 5 times! ha! One lady used to get to pump the water from the well across the road at the farmhouse and carry it over to the school. Baseball was played in the yard now home to the Nigerian Dwarf goat paddocks — new kids are playing there now 😉
The schoolhouse property extends down to the Glebe Road on the shore of Chamcook Harbour in the Bay of Fundy. With paths all along the property, you are more than welcome to walk through the woods and meadows down to the bay to put your toes in the salty water and see the tide. There is also a great picnic and campfire spot for you to enjoy a sunny New Brunswick afternoon or a dark and starry night.
Along the paths, you will also find Berkshire pigs, Nigerian Dwarf goats, Light Sussex chickens (seasonally), and occasionally a few white-tailed and piebald deer, who will love to say hello during your walks.
What We Do
We are really enjoying turning this property into a beautiful place and bountiful homestead. We’ve been able to begin to see the fruits of our work here as our animals have multiplied! We list our animals and produce for sale here in our shop.
We are raising Light Sussex chickens, Nigerian Dwarf goats, and Berkshire Pigs. We have learned a lot! Growing up on a farm isn’t exactly the same as managing one and although we know how to work hard we’ve since learned a lot about managing, feed, and animal husbandry.
Come and see what makes Chamcook so wonderful, enjoy the schoolhouse and animals, the ocean, and experience a little bit of history!
Let’s Keep In Touch
See the Animals
Right now we offer private booking times for families or small groups to come see the animals, walk the goats. Wouldn’t that be a fun addition to a birthday party or to take the kids while you’re on vacation?
Things are changing and growing and appearing and disappearing in our shop. Have a look and see what’s up.
