Castle Frederick Farm

On the west bank of the Avon river, in Nova Scotia's Hants County, the eighth generation of the Bremner family continues to farm a piece of land that has been in the family since 1763.

Earlier this month the province's Archeological Land Trust signed an agreement with the family to protect part of their land as a site of archeological interest.

But the four Bremner sisters - who along with their father,now own the farm - are thinking about the future as much as the past.

Host Pauline Dakin visits the farm and the family to hear their story.
