Aylesford is a farming community in the county of Kings in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia, Canada. It is nestled between the North and South Mountains and located roughly 15 minutes from CFB Greenwood and 10 minutes from Berwick. As of 2006 the population was 829.
Aylesford is located on the Evangeline Trail (Trunk 1) tourist route, named after the famous Acadian story about Evangeline. It is a service centre for the surrounding agricultural district. An important crop is cranberries cultivated on the extensive peat bogs. Peat moss harvesting operations are also active.
Aylesford's largest tourist attraction, the Oaklawn Farm Zoo, was home to the heaviest living lion in captivity, as certified by Guinness World Records in 1997. The zoo also has a variety of other animals including tigers, Dromedary Camels, and a variety of monkeys.
