This land has been in the family for over 100 years and as the owners are looking to retire, they want to see it remain as farm land.Located in Romain’s Brook, at the entrance to the Port au Port peninsula, Romain’s Farm is one of the oldest farms on the French shore, dating back to 1860, if not earlier. The farm has traditionally grown vegetables and continues to do so today: cabbage, potatoes, turnip, carrots.
