2689 Cedar Road

Nestled in the Cedar area just south of Nanaimo, amongst second growth forest, you will find the fields, ponds and creek of Thistledown. A beautiful new post & beam cedar home, built from trees selectively logged and milled on the property, sits amongst scattered older barns, workshops and bird-watching blinds, adding to the pastoral charm. The organic farm’s 7 acres of hay is cultivated, cut and baled by Joanne McLeod, president of the local Farmer’s Institute, with 10% remaining on-farm for use in the garden. The beautiful garden areas are full of diversity – berries, vegetables, fruits, nuts … and the buildings remind of times past when many goats, sheep and chickens were raised by the original settlers to the area.
