    570 acres if huge! After working and exploring this land for over a decade, I know. I still haven't seen it all. You will love the diversity of the landscape from sloping fields to rich green forests to white gypsum cliffs and peaks, from small streams and ponds to a beautiful lake and magical Winter Cove. We have farmed the land, worked the woodlots, and planned a large orchard, always feeling supported by its fertility. I love to hear comments from visitors who exclaim about not just the beauty, but how wonderful it feels or how strong they feel when they are on the land. It is truly an amazing place. I invite yo to visit, wander the land, and feel it for yourself. As you drive along the Campbell Road you will come around a bend and see the land spread out before you. Cross the bridge over the stream and see yourself kayaking out to Winter Cove and the Bras d'Or or fishing along its banks. Imagine, this is your driveway, all cleared and welcoming you to Your World.

    This land was farmed for almost 200 years and has never seen a chemical! This land was farmed from 1800 until 1985. I was told at one time 200 acres were cultivated and have found the evidence in the form of old pieces of pasture fencing far into the present woods. No chemicals have ever been used on this land. There are many commercial crops that excel in this area, including apples, blueberries, strawberries, root crops, and an extensive variety of vegetables. At one time we were working with a provincial grant to plant 200 apple trees. We easily kept a few dairy cows, pastured our horses, raised some beef, chickens, and pork. There is, of course, much room for expansion of pastureland to accommodate sheep or more cows and to cultivate more crops. There is encouragement and support for agricultural development and a market for locally grown and organic meat and produce.

    Sports, outdoor adventures, art, crafts, music, spirituality....Explore your passion! You will hear many songs with the familiar theme “my heart is in Cape Breton”. She will capture your heart! I know. Many years later, she is still so dear to me. The music, culture, and beauty of Cape Breton will affect you deeply as you visit the festivals and ceilidhs, watching the dancers and musicians. You will also feel the call of the beautiful land as you go fishing, canoeing, kayaking, hiking, and skiing, or just drive around taking in the unequaled scenery. Cape Breton is known for all of this. But, she is also known for her people. Cape Bretoners are warm, friendly, fun loving folks. As you become one of them, your pace will slow down and your cares will melt away.

    Becoming the steward of 570 acres is a serious responsibility. There are various resources to assist you. The health of Cape Breton's forests are essential to it's ecosystem, economy, and overall beauty. If spruce and pine trees live past their ideal age, they more easily attract and host pests which can spread throughout and destroy our forests. Woodlot management requires a plan, designed by a professional, which this land has in place. A map of the property with many sections representing each type of wooded area is drawn up and a plan is formed based on the needs of each section. At various times this can mean that pulp should be cut from some of these sections to keep the woods healthy. This is also an income producing aspect of the land as there is presently much marketable timber. The size of the area to be clear cut varies according to need but is generally a few acres. It quickly re-seeds from the surrounding woods. At this time, there is an organization available to accept the responsibility of managing your woodlot and consulting with you regarding recommended action. Also, because there is a woodlot management plan in action, the land is considered resource land and taxed at a very low rate. You are under no obligation to manage your woodlot. It is a question of ecology and good conscience.

    A part of Cape Breton's rich history, the Campbells settled this land in 1800. We are only the second owners. John Campbell chose this land at the dawn of the 19th century because it offered a perfect environment for his farm and lifestyle. Over the years he and his brothers and sons were granted approximately 1,000 acres from the King and Queen. After some family divisions, the 570 acres still remain as Campbell Land and I am only the second owner. In the early years an ever expanding log cabin was home. Neil Campbell, John's son, built the newer home in 1873, which unfortunately burned in !988. The Campbells were highly regarded as “learned” and “hard workers” and gained a reputation for breeding and training oxen. The barn, which is no longer standing, was the largest in the area. I heard a story that at the barn raising they served bread made from milled flour, the first to be seen in the area. The stream which goes out to Winter Cove has been a celebrated fishing spot since the 1800's. I was told the Campbells often entertained folks from Sydney who would come out on the train to fish in Winter Cover. Just before the house burned, it was to be placed in the historic registry.

As a professional dowser and energy worker, I would describe the energy of this land as powerfully healing, invigorating, embracing, and focused. I would hope that this is a topic you would like to discuss and urge you to contact me personally.
