Our orchard at Fossil Farms



Nestled on Nova Scotia’s Northumberland Strait along Merigomish Harbour, just outside of New Glasgow, Fossil Farms Oceanside Retreat is an oasis for nature and outdoor enthusiasts looking for a unique and tranquil escape – with friends, family or corporate colleagues – for vacations, reunions, retreats, weddings or meetings.

Tuck into our collection of cottages and guestrooms and spend your days savouring oceanside strolls at the Farm - or cycle our trails. Paddle out to the islands for a picnic or go swimming in the warmest waters north of the Carolina’s. As night falls, come gather round the bonfire for stargazing, sharing stories and s’more making. Drop by The Barn – our version of a ‘main lodge’ – filled with games, meeting spaces, and wait until you smell what we’ve been cooking in the kitchen!

We look forward to welcoming you to our 200 year old farm, its vineyard, gardens, greenhouses, orchard, apiary – and we can’t wait to introduce you to our chickens and sheep!
