Kings County, situated in the province of Nova Scotia, sits in the Annapolis Valley on the shore of the Bay of Fundy.

The area spans 2,122 sq. km, and includes towns such as Berwick, Kentville, and Wolfville.

The Annapolis Valley, in which Kings County is located, is a large area spanning 126 kilometres that is sheltered by the North and South Mountains creating a micro-climate of mild temperatures and incredibly fertile glacial soil, which makes it perfect for agriculture and growing crops.

The county has a humid climate with mild summers and cool winters.However, the area is prone to storms due to its positioning by the Bay of Fundy.

The first inhabitants were thought to have lived in the county thousands of years ago, but the Europeans first colonized it in the late 1600s.

The land has been controlled by both French and English settlers over the years, and agriculture has always been a strong industry dating back to the 1700s.

Kings County has a very strong Black heritage, and the African Canadian population increased after the 1800s, so the area is still diverse to this day.

Kings County is a relatively small community, and reached a population of 60,500 in 2011.

94% of the population speak English only, and are a diverse mix of primarily Canadians, English, Scottish, Irish, German, and French.
