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 creatively 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.

Available finished or unfinished – come and visit the farm to have a look.

Cherry Pits

They aren’t just for spitting any more!

Cherry Pits can be used for filling a variety of toys and crafts. Naturally grown and dried Cherry Pits are amazing & unique thermal insulators which do not rot, naturally deter pests and have a comforting and fresh cherry scent.  Tactile, clean, and long-wearing, cherry pits release both moist and dry heat / cold. 

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. Spritz with your favorite essential oil and water then heat for moist heat and aromatherapy.

How many Cherry Pits will you need?

  • To give you an idea, our Therapy Bags are 29″ long by 6″ wide. 
  • They are long enough to drape around the neck with each end sitting just over the middle of the chest.
  • Each bag has an external cherry fabric cover that can be removed and washed.
  • The internal fabric bag holds the pits and is subdivided into 8 pockets.
  • Each pocket holds 65 grams. There are 8×65 = 520 grams or 1.15 pounds total (~ 2 cups)
  • Note:  The more pits you put into your bag, the less likely it is to bend.  It’s really a question of how flexible you want the bag to be.  We settled on 65 grams/pocket.
