Set on 80 hectares (197 acres) of a still-functioning grange, the historic Thistle Ha' Farm comprises of a time-honored stone house, a wooden barn, and several sheds that collectively spell rural charm. The farmstead was the property of John Miller, who settled in the Pickering area in 1839 and established the idyllic farm known as Thistle Ha'. Miller is perhaps best known as one of the top members of the purebred livestock industry that existed in Canada and the United States in the mid and late-1800s. In particular, he and his family worked with and bred Clydesdale horses, Yorkshire pigs, Shorthorn cattle, and Cotswold sheep. Thanks to the important steps Miller helped Canadian agriculture to achieve, his family farm was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1973. The farm is still owned and operated by the Miller family, and continues to do great things for Canadian agriculture.
