Agriculture is truly king in Kings North, home to about half of the province's 600 farms. Chicken, vegetables and pork are the main commodities.
The district includes the northern part of Kings County overlooking the scenic Minas Basin at Cape Blomidon and the town of Kentville, where Valley Regional Hospital is located.
The manufacturing and service sectors are strong employers along the New Minas corridor.
Kings North was a bastion of Tory strength for three decades, starting with Progressive Conservative George Archibald who represented the constituency from 1984 until he retired from politics in 1999.
Mark Parent took up the Progressive Conservative banner that year and served as the area's MLA for a decade, before losing the 2009 election to New Democrat Jim Morton.
