Provide Environmentally Preferable Products Services
Description of Action: 

Many wood products sold at the store such as tables, bookshelves, hutches, etc., are made from reclaimed antique barn wood from Pennsylvania. Before being crafted into furniture the wood is housed at a warehouse in Pennsylvania. Additional products such as sofas are made using sustainable frames, eco-friendly dyes, and plant-based cushions.

Waste Reuse
Description of Action: 
The furniture sold at The Farmhouse Store is made from reclaimed barn wood; in 2015 approximately 10,000 pounds of wood was sold as furniture instead of sent to a landfill.
