The third most populous county in the province of Nova Scotia, Kings County is located in the central part of the province along the shore of the Bay of Fundy. Boasting some of the highest tides in the world, the bay has a dramatic impact on the county and defines its unique geography of dykelands, tidal plains, and rich and fertile farmlands. Home to a variety of agricultural producers and artisans, residents of Kings County have a strong and long standing connection to the land and sea. Once home to major manufacturing and transportation infrastructure such as Kingsport's shipbuilding and Kentville's railroad headquarters, the present day county sports wineries and restaurants, craft makers of cider, cheese, and meats alongside large manufacturing operations. It is also home to CFB Greenwood (air force), Acadia University (Wolfville), and Michelin (Waterville plant) - all some of its larger employers.
