Situated a few miles/kilometres north of the town of Berwick, it consists of approximately 25+/- acres of gently sloping cultivated land on the lower portion and 31/- acres of mixed mature forest on the upper portion, with an accessible road (your own very private nature preserve of evergreens, hardwoods, natural mountain water springs, wildlife and spectacular south facing views of the valley). The lower portion is currently under cultivation with feed crops for a local dairy farmer. There are no buildings on this property and it is zoned "Agriculture".
Annapolis Springs Farm has potential for a variety of agricultural uses, including, and ideally suited for, a vineyard or orchard, feed crops and vegetables, controlled climate (green house) and live stock operations . Currently, vineyard development is a high priority of the Nova Scotia provincial Department of Agriculture, with assistance available to existing and new operators (financial, technical, consulting and mentoring, etc., for new entrants to agriculture. Nova Scotia wines have won many regional, national and international awards. There is a demand for new vineyards to meet the growing needs of existing and future wineries.

This property is on the south facing side of North Mountain and offers breathtaking panoramic views of the Annapolis Valley. Over the top of North mountain and 4-6 Km (2.5-3.7 miles) to the north west, lie the shores of the Bay of Fundy, home of the famous highest tides in the world, which has a positive influence on climate conditions and the potential to grow grapes which make world class wines. The south facing exposure, gentle slope, warm day time heat units, gentle breezes, combined with the cool nights, contribute to excellent grape juice quality and hence great wines.
