our farm, our family
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.
