Description:
A wonderful picture showing the diversity of the Biggar family farm, Glenclare Farm.

Albert Biggar's grandfather, Michael, had first owned the property, Lot 15, Concession 2 NDS Trafalgar Township, running north from Burnhamthorpe Road on the east side of 6th Line. Acreage was added to expand this property as the family grew and another farm fronting on "the Dundas highway" was also purchased in later years.

Unfortunately, there is no date nor is the young person with the flock identified. It is in a postcard format.
