Beautiful piece of land you have there! Im also from nova scotia, and my partner and i have been looking for an opportunity like this on and off for a year or two now. We are currently living in Quebec for the winter but are planning to visit family every now and again in the up coming months. Where in nova scotia is your property?
Hope all is well!

With the hwy I live on being a nightmare for cyclists, width of transport as to not hang a trailer wheel or the ability to drop off onto washed away shoulders at a moments noice, a cargo bike would work best.

Yes. We have plenty of hay field that goes to waist. We have cut it for several years just to restore it to hay and wrestle it back from golden rod. Now its proper hay...that we only use as mulch. Sadly we don't have suitable outbuildings for hay storage unless you wish to build one or bring in a shipping container. We have been wanting to experiment with haystacks. We do already have patches of sunchoke that are taking over.
