Harvests of Prince Edward Island

Creator(s): Community Museums Association

Prince Edward Island (P.E.I.) has a rich history of its people depending on the land and sea for survival. A number of major industries have contributed significantly to the developing of this Atlantic Region including well-known P.E.I potatoes, Malpeque Oysters, Silver Fox pelts, Irish Moss, and Mussel Mud.

Harvests of Prince Edward Island will take you through the history of P.E.I. and provide details on each of these significant harvests that have made P.E.I. the province it is today. While some of these industries and practices have faded with the past, they played an essential role in developing the region into a self-sustaining and economical region.
