MacDonald Farm


The MacDonald Farm in Lower Newcastle overlooks the Miramichi River and is situated in a beautiful pastoral setting. To discover its secrets and appreciate the charming scenery, visitors can follow a winding trail that leads to the historic homestead.

Located on Route 11, 13 km (8 mi.) north of the city Miramichi, the site tells the story of early Scottish settler Alexander MacDonald, his family and the way of life in 1820.

Savour the smells of traditional foods cooked over an open fire, view embroidery and domestic crafts, observe gardening, and take a look at the daily chores required for the care of farm animals.
