This is the story of a farm like no other. Officially designated as "Range 8 parts of Lots 9 and 10" of Eaton Township, Cookshire's Pine Hill Farm is unique in so many ways: its geographic features, the great variety of crops grown, the Noah's ark collection of animals raised, and the unusual woodpecker-like shape of the property.
It is also the story of the five generations of the Bailey-Fraser family, who farmed this land over a period that spanned four centuries. During that time, they have tilled the fields, pampered the animals and toiled night and day to eke out a hard but honourable living on this land. The scope of the book is not limited to the history of my own ancestors, but rather it includes the important history of the First Nations peoples who preceded them on the land I call home.
