A visit to the Roblin Trading Post and Vernie Davis and Sons Farm on the Moneymore Road, Tweed, is like stepping back to a time, when families lived off the land and were largely self-sufficient. Vernie Davis, his wife Donna, their two sons and two daughters and their families live of the ranch. Vernie used to run a fur trading post dealing in furs and traps. He used to harvest ginseng, run a saw mill and have a butchering shop. Time have changed the bottom has gone out of furs and there are new regulations about health and safety re. saw mills and wild ginseng is now classed as a threatened species. Nowadays, his animals are processed at Palmateer's Abattoir in Tweed, andhe and his sons cut and transport lumber rather than processing it at their saw mill. Despite these changes Vernie Davis and Sons Farm and the Roblin Trading Post is an interesting place to visit. They run a herd of Highland cows and have recently bought some young bison (buffalo). Joe Davis lets them out of the barnyard to graze. They are apt to disappear into the woods and he goes after them on his horse with a bucket of corn. They have ponds with mud cats and they have hunt camps on their property. According to Joe some people just like to walk on the property. The Roblin Trading Post has collectibles and artifacts dating back to the days when it was a fur trading post.
