ABOUT THE FARM

 

Having a farm to call her own has been Gillian's dream since she was a little girl.  In the fall of 2016 that dream came true when Gillian and her husband, Richard, purchased a beautiful 25 acre property located in the township of Beckwith, ON.  

Slieve Bloom is the name of a mountain range in Ireland where Gillian and Richard have ancestral ties.  It is also the name Richard's parents had given to their farm where he grew up.  It just seemed fitting that they should continue the tradition and name their farm the same.  

For the first three months on the property they set to work fencing in a paddock for the horses, building a horse shelter and storage for the hay.  Luckily this was all completed before the snow came and Winter began.  In the Spring they will pick up again with plans to build a riding ring, horse barn, yoga studio, pig pen, and chicken coop.

Until then they are making memories and enjoying their beautiful new home and property.
