Object.find_with_ferrey('some keywords ...', {}, {:group=>:column_field,
:conditions=>"1=1"})

the 1st empty {} is for ferret options, with can be :page and :per_page

the 2nd {}, can put any find option

This one will be fine with grouping, but you must add 1 line to

vendor/plugins/acts_as_ferret/lib/class_method.rb

def count_records(id_arrays, find_options = {})
...
          opts = find_options.merge :conditions => conditions
          opts.delete :limit; opts.delete :offset
#----add this line or else it gonna cause error with group option
          opts.delete :group
#----end of adding line
         count += model.count opts
..
    end
