|Description:||Established in 1898 by Seager Wheeler, Maple Grove Farm illustrates the realities of prairie agriculture and the evolution of the industry. Persevering through the dust of the Dirty Thirties, Seager Wheeler successfully demonstrated that by using selective breeding and soil conservation techniques agriculture could work on the prairies. Crowned World Wheat King five times between 1911 and 1918, Seager Wheeler had a tremendous impact on the development of western agriculture and the marketability of the west.
Walk around the farmstead and explore an orchard, extensive flower gardens, shelter belts, remnants of Wheeler's seed plots and many original buildings. Visit the century-old interpretive centre and enjoy a light lunch in the tea room. The site is owned and operated by the Seager Wheeler Farm Historical Society and is located 7 km east of Rosthern on Highway #312 near Batoche National Historic Site.
