At Clyde River Farm and Forest it is our goal to produce high quality rough sawn products for farm use, with excess sold to cover some of the operating costs of our work in the forest.
Lumber can be custom sawn to meet your needs, from boards to clapboards. We maintain a fairly extensive stockpile of dimensional lumber. 2x4, 2x6, and 1” boards are usually on hand.
All of our lumber is harvested sustainably under the guidance of a stewardship forester. Tops are used for the outdoor boiler at the Clyde River House. Cedar is only harvested in the fall months so brush may be fully utilized for holiday products. Some debris is left intentionally in the woods to enrich the soil and provide wildlife habitat.
Stickers are provided for folks buying green lumber. Providing adequate weight on top of green lumber is the customer’s responsibility.
Please contact us for quotes or a full price list. We try to keep our prices competitive with other local mill prices. We hope our market is a local one.
How a CSA works:
When you sign up for a CSA, you are helping a farmer to buy seeds, start plants, and do other early-season work that vegetables and other farm foods require to grow. Early season is a difficult time because while start-up costs for a farm are high, cash flow at that time of year is generally low. By signing up for a share and paying in advance, farmers are able to reliably grow as much as you and your family will need for the late spring, summer, and even into the fall. One of the best features? We deliver right to your door!
When do we start?
For the pick-up farm stand option, you might be able to get started around Memorial Day, depending on the weather, with lettuce, Asian greens, kale, asparagus, fiddleheads and anything else we have managed to coax out of the greenhouse. Our shares will begin around mid-June and continue into September.
We now have a Free Choice pick-up option where you pay ahead and then use the balance of your payment as credit at our farm stand. For more details, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call either 609-865-3627 or 802-673-5569.
