Moving to Bear River ‘from away’

Bear River residents John and Jane Fowler were interviewed for the Annapolis-Digby Economic Development Agency. They emigrated from the UK with their sons in 2006. Here is their story:

John’s work was featured in  the local Digby newspaper when he was asked to design and build Captain Ahab’s chair for the Moby Dick movie; filmed here in Nova Scotia. If you are interested in visiting John’s workshop/studio where he handcrafts traditional Windsor chairs and contemporary furniture,  please contact him through his website or through their farm blog.

PS: the video was filmed and produced by our Bear River  filmmaker Tim Wilson.
