Making a Nova Scotian Style Head Yoke for Oxen

These three videos were produced by Charing Cross Production in cooperation with Ross Farm Museum, the videos were created to show  Roy Levy, a grandfather, passing on the skill of yoke making to his grandson Brandon. Watch as they work together to create a yoke. These videos are links to Ross Farm Museum's YouTube Channel.

 Ross Farm Museum is a living, working, farm museum depicting 150 years of agriculture in Nova Scotia.  Ross Farm Museum is still being farmed with Oxen, the way it was in the late 1800's

I never saw a yoke being made or strapped to an ox before so I enjoyed your videos and found them very informative. I do enjoy seeing the beautiful oxen hauling the carts such as a number of years ago from New Ross to Chester Basin during the Chester Basin 250th Anniversary. Oxen teams from Ross Farm to Chester Basin
