Local Sourcing-Lumbery Style!!

Fact- We love stories.

Did you know that the cordless chainsaw at Butler’s Cedar Shakes doubles as a moose slicer?

Did you read about the fire at Yoder’s sawmill in Corinna last week? Probably not. Why would you? In fact I didn’t learn about it till I spoke with Jim yesterday.

Connections are created with objects and people when we learn more about them.

When I came up with the concept of the Lumbery I presumed I was going to help preserve forests and protect the environment. I didn’t realize I was going to meet people.

Now that’s a good story…in fact so much so that people are writing about it.

Recently we were written up in the Local Wood Works newsletter, HBS Dealer-A hardware and building supply newsletter and picked up by the Forest Business Network.

Help spread the word by passing along these newsletters and following our progress on Instagram and Facebook. And definitely stop into our store if you haven’t already.
