Explore the home of Canada's Grand Old Man of Agriculture, W.R. Motherwell, when you step back in time and re-discover the joy of farming on the prairies in the 1900s. Join staff at work in the fields, caring for the many farm animals or in the old stone house. Enjoy a wagon ride and smell the fresh-cut hay. Indulge in the freshly made flavours at the Off The Beaten Path Café and take a stroll along the wetland trail.

Step out of the hustle and come back to the farm. Don't miss the live farm animals, Xplorers for kids, the Explora Tour for all ages, discovery booklets, and many fun photo ops! Visitor Centre, century-old fieldstone house, barn and interpretive signage. Follow Motherwell on twitter at #MotherwellNHS.
