Where We Are
The office of the Nova Scotia Fruit Growers’ Association is located in Blair House, on the grounds of the Kentville Agricultural Centre. Blair House is situated west of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Atlantic Food and Horticulture ResearchCentre’s main complex.
The town of Kentville is located along the Evangeline Trail in Nova Scotia’s beautiful Annapolis Valley, it is only 1 hour from Halifax or Digby or 2 1/2 hours from Yarmouth. Originally called Horton Corner,Kentville was renamed in 1826 after Queen Victoria’s father, the Duke of Kent, visited the community.
Take Exit 12 off of Highway 101 along the connector road to Highway 1 (New Minas – Kentville). Turning left onto Highway 1 leads into Kentville. The entrance to the Agricultural Centre is on the left as you enter town limits. Following up the hill leads to the Research Centre (32 Main Street). Turn right at the top of the driveway to Blair House, former home of the superintendent.
This section is designed to provide a comprehensive look at our organization. With that in mind, this section is divided into two parts.
