About Peggy Farabaugh

Peggy Farabaugh
She is a CEO who brakes for salamanders, has bottle-fed rescued squirrels and spent her vacation building furniture for a rural school in Costa Rica. She believes in the future and in the people who will build it. A former distance-learning professor at Tulane University with a master’s in environmental health & safety, she turned an interest in forest conservation and endangered species into a growing, local business. She delivers rainforest statistics at breakneck speed, but knows how to slow down and appreciate the beauty of a newly finished piece of heirloom furniture.

This Father’s Day plaque’s been hanging on our wall for 17 years but I still tear up every time I stop to read it. Riley was lucky enough to have Mrs Carol Richardson and Mrs Peggy Stetzel for kindergarten teachers. Big thanks to them for the love and care they’ve given to a generation of Vernon’s children (and their fathers & mothers).

Cirque Chandelier | Hubbardton Forge Lighting
Reminiscent of a loosely closed flower blossom, the Cirque Chandelier holds a small candelabra bulb nestled inside each petal-like section. This unique design allows for a zen-like illumination to be cast on its surrounds while offering an alluring focal point for any room in your home.

Adirondack Chairs | Polywood
Why Polywood? We have a thing about longevity and keeping stuff out of the landfill. Polywood is the only outdoor furniture we can confidently offer a lifetime guarantee for.  Plus it’s made of recycled milk jugs– 500 in each chair. So instead of buying furniture that’s made from illegal rainforest wood, you’re keeping plastic waste out of our landfills.  How awesome are you?
