Make it yours. Love it. Beat it up. Fill it with family and friends, and then plan on passing it down. Custom tables and kitchen tools that last

Tell us about your business.

I was raised in North Carolina and learned to work with my hands at an early age. After finishing school and working as a chef my wife and I decided to chase our dreams in Vermont. Our lives were very much focused on food and our love of gathering with friends around the table. I strongly believe that the table is the soul of the home, and decided to set out to build hardworking, beautiful tables that would bring families and friends together. That's when Vermont Farm Table was born. Building heirloom-quality furniture is a lost art. Tables built by hand have a soul and character you can't find in mass furniture. We dismantle and reclaim materials and use regionally-source hardwoods. Our tables and kitchen tools are handcrafted using traditional techniques. Vermont Farm Table strives to further the craft and build beautiful products that will last for generations.

What makes your business stand out?

Vermont Farm Table believes in the power and importance of the local economy. We work exclusively with regional and local partners in everything from sourcing to collaborative product development. We are on a mission to bring beautiful, hardworking furniture to families all over the country and enrich our local community along the way. At the end of the day, it is the act of coming together around the table with those we love that inspires and fuels us. I build tables that I know will last, and it gives me great pride and satisfaction to be a part of people’s lives in this way.
