Hey there! I’m Panthera, and welcome to Feralwood Farm. A place where you can dive deep into your inner wild and learn to reconnect with nature.
I started my journey back when I was living in an apartment in a small city, working a full-time retail job.
Basically waking up, working, sitting at my computer to “relax”, and sleeping.
Life was really dull. I found myself wondering…is this really it? Is this all I have to look forward to? Winter was the worst, when it’s so cold outside that you barely see the actual sun. Seasonal depression is rough, and I feel for any of you who may be in the same boat that I was in.
But I knew I wanted change. This can’t be everything, there has to be more. I wasn’t always like this, so sedentary and spending so much time indoors. I started to seek new hobbies, that would pull me away from the computer and bring me some happiness even in the dark Winter months.
I found gardening, starting with just a few indoor house plants and then extending to encompass my small apartment balcony. Learning to live with the seasons, with times of growth, harvest, then rest.
Through gardening I discovered homesteading, the idea of self-sufficiency, raising your own produce and animals, being able to tend to a chunk of land in a sustainable way…
And then I discovered Witchcraft. A strangely accurate tarot reading led me to want to test it for myself as a certified skeptic. The idea that you hold more power in the world then you’ve been told to believe….that is very tempting indeed, because that’s what we all really want right? Being able to support ourselves, not being trapped in a system that doesn’t provide you with what you want…what you need. Being able to achieve great things for yourself.
I personally think these three things work so well in combination with eachother, and thus Feralwood Farm was born. So come join me as we learn to embrace these seasonal rhythms and work with Nature to truly realize our full potential… Welcome to Feralwood Farm.
