 We live and work on our beautiful 46 acre farm in the rolling hills of the Finger Lakes region of New York State. During the growing season, we are farmers by day and craftspeople by night.

Our mutual love of working with our hands and our dedication to high quality craftsmanship ties us together. Old tools, old methods, and new ideas are our passion, and we hope the joy we experience in our work shows.

We make our objects entirely by hand as a testament to our humanness. It is fulfilling to continue the tradition of creating quality goods that will last a lifetime. We want you to use them for years and years, and hope you pass them on down the line.
