The Bates farm, nestled along the shores of the beautiful Belleisle Bay in Long Point, is part of a long and historic past in Kings County. Mathew Bates settled here in 1836 beginning generations of farming on this spot by his descendants. The farm was recognized nationally by Canadian Heritage in 1967 for continuous operation since Canadian Confederation in 1867. Their quilt block is a variation on the Centennial Farm recognition sign that was granted to the farm on that anniversary. Today, this still vibrantly active property is approaching its 150th anniversary as a Canadian heritage farm.
