The Edgar family of “The Hill” farm is celebrating 180 years (1837- 2017). James and Jane Edgar with their eight children and grandmother emigrated from native Ayrshire, Scotland and landed in New York July 26th 1836. A year later, thirty years before Canada became a country, they purchased “The Hill” farm for $2350 dollars. Currently the sixth and seventh generations reside on the farm. It is an active commercial farm consisting of over 600 acres with broiler chickens and a beef cattle feedlot. The farm is a testimonial of generations of hard work and good fortune.
