FARM HOUSE displayed by Carol J.
 
This farm house would have been owned by a family at a time when modern amenities were available in rural areas.

Earlier homes may have been soddy huts or built with roughly hewn wood and have neither electricity or running water . They would have been lit by coal oil lamps, heated with wood stoves, and the bathroom facilities would have been out-houses.
 
The kitchen was usually the most important room in the farmhouse. It offered country comfort where a large, farm-to-table style meal could be prepared and enjoyed after a day of working outdoors.

Many had front porches, open or enclosed depending on the location, and were designed to function in a rural farm setting.
 
In 2011, Canada had 205,730 farms that produced agriculture products for resale
