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
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
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
- 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.
