Thanks for visiting!
Feywood Grove is a small homestead located on beautiful Cape Breton Island. Encompassing both a small organic farm and a studio for the production of hand crafted artisan products, we are inspired by the natural beauty around us and strive to connect that beauty to what we produce at Feywood Grove. If you have found our website because you are interested in the animals and plants we raise on our farm and our journey to become self-reliant, then please check out our farm page. If instead you are here to see our beautiful nature inspired artisans products, then please visit our studio page. Whatever your interest in Feywood Grove, we hope that you spend some time enjoying our website.
We are hosting volunteers again this year! We are hoping to begin hosting in May, so please or contact us if you are interested in volunteering with our small farm. Our 2020 farm projects include the construction of a farm store, community space & teaching workshops. There will be lots of opportunity to help with the gardens, and animals as well! We look forward to hearing from you!
We have also been fundraising for our folk school workshop space. The money will go toward renovating an existing building on our property so that we can host the community for workshops and events in a beautiful space. It turns out it was a bigger project than we thought because the roof became damaged in a winter storm at the beginning of 2020, but we have raised and saved enough to replace the roof and begin construction on the indoors workshop space. The windows were already replaced in the fall of 2019! We are so excited to be moving forward with our dream of starting a folk school right here in Cape Breton to share homesteading workshops, artisan classes, and nature connection events! We know that these skills are increasingly needed in this world as the climate disaster looms and economic times are uncertain and we want to share our knowledge to help build a resilient community, but we need YOUR help to get it off the ground and running! If you would like to contribute to our fundraising for future improvements to the school, we would greatly appreciate it! Future folk school projects will add a community garden and outdoor kitchen space! If you can donate or even just share this post, we would greatly appreciate it! https://www.gofundme.com/feywood-grove-folk-school…
