Keewatin Farm is located a mere half-hour from the City of Regina, capital of the province of Saskatchewan - in the heart of wide-open Canadian prairies. It is an area where every tree is a planted tree.

The province’s motto is ‘Land of Living Skies’ and it is absolutely true. Our landscape has a limitless full-circle horizon and the all the sky between. And that sky can be dramatic - rolling clouds, storms, lightning, remarkable sunsets, and breathtaking northern lights.

The Best of Both Worlds
We are located close enough to Regina for easy access, and yet far enough away to have peace and quiet, and a clear, dark sky for viewing the stars.

The farmstead is centred around a lovely old Edwardian red-brick house featuring two porches - front and back - so visitors can enjoy sun or shade depending on the condition of the day. There are lots of trees in the well-developed yard and visitors with time and patience can identify many bird species by sight and song.

Not far from the house - just below the barn - is a small prairie valley whose spring-fed water flows with enthusiasm to join the river in the famous Qu’Appelle Valley. The area is home to lots of indigenous species including hawks, foxes, rabbits, the ever-presurvivalist - the gopher, and of course, coyotes - sometimes you can hear them after dark.

Optional - Work or Play
Keewatin Farm is a working certified-organic farm, primarily field crops, with breeding herd of Canadien horses - Canada’s National Horse, so there’s is always lots to do or observe.

Guests can take life easy - settle in with a book in the shade of the porch, nap in the sun with a cool drink at hand , or take a casual walk down the valley. Or if it so desired, guests can assist us in our daily work - there are a variety of things which could be done including feeding or grooming the horses, working in the garden, or whatever the day ’s job might be.

Start Here, and Go Elsewhere
And of course, guests can use the farm as staging point to visit other places. We would be pleased to assist or to make arrangements for guests to visit other local or provincial sites.

In Regina, there are the usual things one might expect from a city of 200,000 but especially there are: the new Heritage Centre at the RCMP Depot - the home of the Canadian Mounties, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum (a natural history pleasure), the Provincial Legislature Building in the heart of the beautiful Wascana Centre - one of the largest urban parks in North America, and the Science Centre with its IMAX theatre.

If natural history of interest, nearby there is the glacially-carved Qu’Appelle Valley and its chain of lakes, and the Last Mountain Lake Bird Sanctuary - a world heritage site.

Farther afield , there are National Parks, National Historic Sites, Museum, First Nations Heritage Facilities.

Naturally, thoroughout the year there are a multitude of cultural events of the region - multicultural festivals, first nations pow-wows, theatre, arts events, wagon trains and trail rides.
