Where We Are

The office of the Nova Scotia Fruit Growers' Association is located in Blair House, on the grounds of the Kentville Agricultural Centre. Blair House is situated west of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's Atlantic Food and Horticulture Research Centre's main complex.

The town of Kentville is located along the Evangeline Trail in Nova Scotia's beautiful Annapolis Valley, it is only 1 hour from Halifax or Digby or 2 1/2 hours from Yarmouth. Originally called Horton Corner, Kentville was renamed in 1826 after Queen Victoria's father, the Duke of Kent, visited the community.
