During the early days of homesteading, Canadian settlers were granted a quarter section of land which amounted to 160 acres. Each quarter section was divided into four sections, which were generally referred to as the two front forty and two the back forty. Generally the back forty was the last piece of land that settlers would clear as they established their farm 
The term stuck around with many who grew up on a family farm being able to quickly reference their own back forty memories - “The cows got out and into the wheat on the back forty”
“He’s out picking stones on the back forty”
“We should build a new fence around the pasture on the back forty” 
Our take on Back Forty sees us couple a rich blend of young balsam & paper birch, blending them a gust of fresh breeze to create a scent that reminds us of when we’d walk out to the back forty to see the ol’ man as he worked the land that his grandparents first settled so many years ago
