Welcome to Free Spirit Farm

Our small farm and forest in Nova Scotia follows its own path.  We create garden raised beds along with unique, beautiful and practical kitchen and home accessories and rustic bird feeders using wood we produce ourselves.  We also offer hardwood and softwood live edge planks and custom sawing for your own projects.  The products we create come from trees damaged by storms or beavers and from trees removed during  thinning operations conducted to improve forest stands and diversity.  Our beautiful and useful products foster a greater appreciation of the value of Nova Scotia woodlands while also sequestering carbon.  As stewards of this forest, we follow practices designed to restore the Acadian Forest and create diverse habitat for native plants, birds and animals.

In the Halifax area you will find our products at Made in the Maritimes Artisan Boutique, Hydrostone Market and Bayers Lake in Halifax, and at Hope for Wildlife in Seaforth.  In northern Nova Scotia, you will find our products at Lismore Sheep Farm Wool Shop in River John.  We offer delivery of Raised Garden Beds and Grow Bag Containers.  If you do not find what you are looking for,  please contact us.  We do requests!

Our goal is to produce useful and practical products in an environmentally sustainable manner from the resources available to us. We live and work simply with deep respect and awe of the ecosystem.

Our forest land was devastated by Hurricane Fiona.  We have been spending all of our available time working in the forest, reopening roads and trails and wildlife corridors and salvaging sawlogs and firewood.  On top of the hurricane damage, our work has also been adversely impacted by unusually warm winter weather, because we can only harvest wood when the soil is dry or frozen.

In addition, we plan to continue our longstanding practice of not using equipment in the woods during the months of May, June and July during the songbird nesting season.

While we continue this cleanup, we have decided not to make any garden beds so we can concentrate on the forest work.  Thank you for your interest in our products.
