  • Cherry Wood Charcuterie Boards

    Charcuterie (pronounced :shahr-ku-tuh-ree”) is essentially a collection of techniques that in one way or another seek to limit food spoilage.  Smoked, Cured or Cooked meats are all traditional methods of preservation.  The Board has become a popular backdrop to highlight a carefully curated selection of cured meats often used when entertaining friends and family.  Beyond meat, the board has evolved to display everything from favorite cheeses, breads, fruits & vegetables and specialty dishes to anything else someone can creativity envision.

    Our particular boards come from sturdy and vibrant cherry tree pruning cuts. Nurtured over many years with love and devotion, the wood grows to be unique and beautiful in its own right.  Cut, honed & polished by hand, each board is further developed into distinctive art.

    Cherry Pits

    They aren’t just for spitting any more!

    Cherry pits can be used for filling a variety of toys and crafts. Avoid the unpleasant smell of bean or rice filled craft projects by using clean, dry cherry pits instead. Cherry pits also possess unique properties that make them ideal for filling hot or cold pads. Cherry pits have three times the heating capacity and heat retention properties of chemicals. Heating pads filled with cherry pits can be warmed in the microwave or kept in the freezer and function as cold packs.

    Washing & Sorting cherry pits is not difficult, but a little time consuming. If you’ve got some time, save yourself some money by ordering the unwashed / unsorted pits.
