Sumac Farms is located fifteen minutes from the Trans-Canada Highway and New Glasgow, in Pictou County, Nova Scotia. The facilities comprise approximately 460 acres of private woodlands, and it is 2 kilometres from the beach.

A new facility was constructed in 2002 which was designed to our specifications, and built to the very highest standards.

For horse accommodation, there are fifteen luxurious 12 ft. x14 ft. rubber floored, heated stalls, including a wash stall.   Adjoining this barn is a 200x66ft heated indoor sand arena with viewing lounge.  

In addition, there is an outdoor arena of similar size. The buildings are surrounded by six large grass paddocks, with post and rail fencing and safe automatic water bowls.  
There is a six kilometre ( 3¾ miles ) trail round the lake on the property, for the exclusive use of the owners and boarders at the facility, with as many as six other trails leading on and off the main trail.

Added, in 2010, is a  39 stall show barn, the stalls are 10 x 10, rubber floored, with sliding doors. In addition to the facilities are new washrooms and trailer hook ups.

The original facility is by the Home Farm, the beach and guest houses.   That barn has six horse stalls (across from the llama stalls) with under floor heating, and is surrounded by 4 large (post and railed) pastures and smaller turnout areas.

The two barns are 4 kms apart by road. (less on horseback by beach and trails).

 **NB All horses visiting Sumac are required to be vaccinated against Flu, Tetanus, and Rhino.
