Stewardship and management
Motherwell Homestead National Historic Site
On a bend in the road one hour west of Yorkton and northeast of Regina, W.R. Motherwell’s original homestead stands as an authentic snapshot of prairie farm life at the turn of the 20th century.
Proud farmer and respected politician spend a day in the life of the Grand Old Man of Agriculture who helped shape Canada’s farm policy.
Golden fields of wheat shimmer under vast prairie skies. See for miles across the flat farmlands, the road outside disappearing into a far off point on the horizon. Join costume-clad workers for a day of labour on the homestead, fresh-baked bread scenting the air. Jump on a hay wagon, as a team of horses, their brasses clanking, bounce you across the freshly cut grass. Join farmhands on a morning milking the cows, watch the chickens come running at the rattle of the feed bucket.
