Visit our 200 year old hill farm, where we create custom designed, one of a kind furniture and woodenware. In our Woodshop Gallery meet our family craftsmen and watch them demonstrate woodworking in beautiful Burls and Figured Hardwoods. Learn of the long tradition of forestry and wood products in Vermont. Shop for gifts and furniture in our gallery barn, or discuss your custom furniture with us. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy it on one of the tables in the old lane, under the heirloom apple trees.
Our family has a heritage of woodworking here at Rockledge Farm. Four generations ago we operated a mail order business from the Farm, selling among other products produced, wood furniture. Today Rockledge Farm Woodworks is a small, family operated business, in the beautiful valley formed by the North Branch of the Black River in Southeastern Vermont.
Our work is either inspired by working to fulfill the needs and desires of our clients, or by the piece of wood itself in the case of the One-of-a-Kind pieces we create from unusual and distinctive "Live Edge" or figured woods. One of our barns is a storehouse of these rare pieces of wood, where they may sit for years, waiting for the moment when a piece "speaks" to us, when suddenly the proper use for that wood becomes apparent. In our Showroom Barn you will find an ever-changing array of this furniture, and truly unique woodenware gift items.
We endeavor to use woods which we know have been harvested in a responsible, sustainable manner. Unless otherwise specified by a customer, our furniture is constructed exclusively from native Vermont and northern New England Hardwoods which we carefully hand-select from a number of small lumber mills around us. Most of our furniture and accessories are made wholly or in part using "Figured" Hardwoods such as Birdseye and Curly Maple, Black Walnut, Cherry, Flame Birch, and Burls of the many hardwoods here in Vermont.
Conveniently located on State Highway 106, a picturesque 15-20 minute drive from the villages of Woodstock, Springfield or Ludlow VT, or Exit 8 of Interstate 91, we look forward to having you visit. We're open Wednesday thru Saturday 9-5, Sunday 12-4, or by appointment.
