Region

Town

Edmonton

Jackson Homesteaders is one of the oldest still-operating homesteads in Alberta

We reside on the original piece of land that Thomas Jackson first occupied in 1883. The Jacksons have a proud farming heritage and invite you to come tour our farm and learn about how our operation runs. We farm 3200 acres in Strathcona County and the Edmonton area, and we partner with extended family to work another 1800 acres in Killam AB. Jacksons also run a horse boarding business, as well as have a small herd of Dexter-cross cattle.

  • We’ll be having farm tours running all weekend
  • As well as up-close encounters with the horses, ponies, chickens, ducks and cows.

The tours will be for all-ages. You’ll learn about the crops we grow, how we grow them, the machinery we use and some of the proud history of our farm.

We’ll have games for the kids and hotdogs available for purchase. Porta-potties will be on-site as well.

We are also hoping to have some local artwork available for viewing and sale (if all goes well with the planning!).

We are located immediately north of Hwy 16, north of Sherwood Park on Clover Bar Road.
