Photographer's Note

Morning mist lies over a farm in the St. John River Valley near Florenceville. This river valey is the home of farming communities. It has historically served as the link between Canada's eastern maritime provinces and the central portions of the country. New Brunswick was once part of the larger colony of Nova Scotia, which in turn comprised Acadia, a region much fought over by England and France in the 18th century. Today the Florenceville region is famous as the world headquarters for McCain Foods, the largest producer of French fries in the world. Most of the farms, with the exception of some cattle ranches, are dedicated to growing potatoes.
