Nova Scotia’s Farming Communities Rely on Caterpillar Equipment
Nova Scotia’s farmlands produce many different crops, including grain, forage, and vegetables. The blueberry crop is particularly important in Nova Scotia, Canada, and over 40,000 acres are dedicated to berry production. In addition to blueberries, grapes are a growing industry, and there is an emerging wine industry in the province. The cool climate of Nova Scotia is conducive to particular grape varieties that may not thrive elsewhere in Canada. In addition to Caterpillar tractors and combines to prepare the land and harvest food, Nova Scotia’s farmers rely on Caterpillar excavators to move a wide variety of items such as feed, dirt, snow, and sand, as well as other Caterpillar machines to assist with projects around the farm.
