Locust Benches and Picnic tables
The newest edition to our product line, we are now offering hand made benches and tables! At Hawk Meadow Farm we are interested in sustainable management of our forests. We generally leave the best trees in our woods but are constantly culling substandard or crowded trees from our woodlands. In particular we have over 10 acres of managed black locust, which produces a highly durable, rot-resistant wood.
Some of the wood we cut goes to firewood for our buildings and maple syrup operation but we also select portions of the trees that would normally be overlooked for milling to make delightful furniture. We use Black Locust for picnic tables and many of the benches; these are left unfinished for outdoor use and has a rustic look. We mill other hardwoods such as cherry, oak and maple which we also turn into benches; these are finished with a hand rubbed oil finish and are probably best for indoor use. All of our benches are generally from portions of the tree with graceful curves and we leave live edges so the connection to the living tree is still felt. Bench width is generally 4-5 feet. We invite you to view these at the farm. Prices range from $175 and up for benches. Locust picnic tables are $375 for 4' lengths and $425 for our 5' tables.
