Birds Hill - Peter Fote and Royal Oak Mink Ranch

Hello

As a child I remember visiting my grandfathers mink ranch in Birds Hill, north of Winnipeg. Seems to me there was a gravel pit there and the mink ranch had a tower or lookout for foxes??

Peter Jacob Fote ran the Royal Oak Mink Ranch from approximately the mid late 1940's to the mid 1950's as far as I can tell. Apparently one of his successes was 'silvertip' breeding stock.

If anyone has any information, knowledge or references to this mink farm operation or the Fote family I would appreciate hearing from you.

Thanks
Ron
