Reindeer at the lake

We believe in making the most of what we have. This truck load of spruce, fir and larch (tamarack) come from a lot being cleared for a lake side home. Rather than burn or bury, we try to see the value in what the land provides. This truck load has been sustainably harvested to make log reindeer for Christmas 2016.

Reindeer are now done, ready for delivery on Saturday. We’ll have to swing by a craft store en route to pick up some ribbon.
