Here at Larch Wood we are always reaching out to find consumers who understand the ‘why’ of what we do. ‘The Grommet’ features products that are also about the ‘how’
Why did we start this in the first place? Because we are from this place.
Larch Wood is on the west side of the island of Cape Breton. We are on the banks of a Heritage Salmon River named the Margaree and butt up against a raised area of land that is called ‘the highlands’, and yes, we can see Eagles and the Gulf of St. Lawrence from our windows.
Much of Cape Breton is covered in forest called the Cape Breton Highlands. As we work entirely with locally sourced wood it is easy to think of our end grain boards as simply a ‘product’. In reality they are also a statement of our Cape Breton community and the health of our society. We support independent loggers and chose the ones with the best forestry practices and encourage more to enter that area of work. We strive to be stewards of the land that we inhabit. It is for these reasons that we make a market in just the one species, The Larch.
Our team crafts each End Grain Board to last for generations to come and would like them to extend the health of your family and home too.
We appreciated that The Grommet actually wanted the back story and that they encouraged us to (get over our technical humps) and tell it.
