Wild & Wooly Lumberjack AXEperience

Learn the history of water-powered textile production, test your lumberjack skills with seven-time World Champion Lumberjack, Darren Hudson and have fun! At the end of the day, connect by campfire to sample Nova Scotia craft beer and s’mores.

Experience Highlights:

  • Go behind-the-scenes at the Barrington Woolen Mill Museum to learn the history of water-powered textile production in the 19th- and early 20th-century. Try cleaning fleece, spinning wool, and weaving your own wool Rob Roy (lumberjack) tartan to take home with you.
  • Try your skills with seven-time World Champion Lumberjack Darren Hudson as he guides you through log rolling, crosscut and bow sawing, tree climbing and axe throwing at the Wild Axe Park.
  • Learn lumberjack heritage with family stories spanning five-generations of what it was and is like being a lumberjack in South West Nova Scotia.
  • Toast your new skills by the campfire: Warm up and enjoy s’mores with a sampling of Nova Scotia craft beer from Boxing Rock Brewing Company – brewed specially for Wild Axe! Or, choose a specialty heritage tea made over the campfire.
