Craig, Geneve, Brian, Edna, David and Evan Newcombe farm together under the name Cornwallis Farm Ltd. This 10th generation family farm has been in operation since 1761 and consists of 1,700 acres in the Annapolis Valley and is home to dairy cows, laying hens, and broiler chickens. In addition, the farm produces a number of crops and has an on-farm feed mill to provide feed for all of their livestock.
The Newcombes laying hen operation consists of 21,000 laying hens that produce about 20,000 table eggs daily. The eggs are shipped to Atlantic Poultry Inc. for grading and distribution under the Nova Egg label. They have six chicken broiler barns that produce 1.4 million kilograms of meat each year. Their broilers are shipped to Eden Valley Poultry for processing and distribution. Sixty-five dairy cows are housed in a free-stall barn. The cows are milked twice a day in a milking parlour. The milk is processed through Agropur Cooperative. All of their farm products are available in your local grocery stores.
The Newcombe’s take great pride in our family farm and in being able to provide Nova Scotian families with safe, nutritious food that is available in your local grocery stores.
