The first 6 seasons….
Featherstone Farm was located in the scenic Lowville Valley along Guelph Line. We rented a 28 acre farm and heritage home founded by the Featherston family in the early 1800’s. We, Andrew and Michelle Macdonald, are the farmers, but declined naming the farm Macdonald farm for many reasons. We are both graduates of the University of Guelph, Environmental Science Program. While not exclusively an aggie program, it is a very interdisciplinary major that allows us both to have gained a very wide perspective and understanding of the different aspects of running a small farm. That foundation, coupled with our desire for good healthy food, a wholesome upbringing for our children, and an insatiable quest for holistic solutions to lifestyle desires has led us to this quest to create a beautiful farm organism.
We were so fortunate to finally take the leap and buy our own dream farm. Now, located in the beautiful Bethany Hills of the Kawartha Lakes, we own 101 acres and manage another 60 next door. Feilds, forest, hills, meadows, springs, wetlands and stream; we now have the ultimate responsibility as a family to be the stewards for this amazing patch of our earth. We have so many plans to grow the diversity and health of the land and to share and bring to you that bounty. We look forward to having you on the journey with us.
While we will be living and growing in Omemee, we will be travelling back to Lowville regularly to provide you with our farm products. Please stay tuned via Fb or email us to join the newsletter.

I want to visit your farm
Super happy for you people! Keep the meat coming. Seriously. You cannot ever. Full stop. Stop. Selling meat👌.
Hi just wondering if you sell beef and pork by the quarters and halfs and what your prices would be.. also wanting more info about ordering chicken
No quarters or halves sorry. Not yet. Next chicken batch going in August 10. No preorders on that batch. Maybe the last batch in the fall. Please call if you have any additional questions. Thank you.
We do not. Sorry. Chicken is available again aug 10, eve. Thx.
On the halton.ca website they mention you have an organic market garden (gmo free) but I don’t see mention of fruits or vegetables on your website. I’m really interested in finding a local farm I can buy gmo free corn from, do you grow corn or can you recommend anyone who does? Thank you for your help!
Hello. Yes. They should have updated their site but are not too good at that. 😉 no garden and no corn this year. Sorry. We have in the past. I’m not sure if they have it but I recommend plan B or simpler thyme for organic veggies. I know marshalls has corn right now. I don’t know if he’s Gmo free. Good luck. I’ll be looking too.
Are you open today? I live close by
I am looking for organic apples
Also can you pick anything?
We ethically raise meats. No apple picking here. Sorry. Bit of beef in the freezers but that is all at the moment. Pork comes back from the butcher Wednesday.
Hello I was wondering if you have turkeys?
I only raise birds outside, so we only have turkeys for thanksgiving and Christmas. Sorry.
