In 1993, 2,700 acres of land in Gardner's Mills was entrusted to Acadia First Nation by its previous owner, John Cook. Located close to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, with valuable forest land with lakes, Acadia First Nation recognized the potential of the property and developed and implemented a forest management plan that included the building of the Acadia First Nation Saw Mill.

In operation since May 2004, the saw mill has enabled Acadia First Nation to:

  • Develop a successful and sustainable resource
  • Implement selective cutting practices
  • Obtain a maximum amount of lumber from trees while reducing   waste
  • Cut lumber to meet specific customer needs such as for housing and   building products
  • Provide value-added products for the market, such as dimensional lumber
  • Enhance employment and economic development opportunities

The mill includes: 

  • Trailer with grappler for moving logs from the forest to the mill
  • Edger to provide customers with a wide range of products
