How Oaklawn Farm Became a Zoo

Back in the early 1970’s, the Rogerson’s started a farm in the Annapolis Valley.  They farmed traditional farm animals along with some interesting exotics.  By 1975, school groups started coming to the farm for their school trips.  In 1980, the “Learning to Live” program started at the farm, which involved kids from the local schools.  This program  provided the children with work experience involved with the care of animals.  The popularity of the farm grew and grew and by 1984, they decided to open to the public.  The animal varieties expanded as the farm became a zoo.  Now more than 30 years later, the zoo continues to flourish.
