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.
Mother's Day Gift Guide
Moms: if your kids are all grown up like mine, take a minute to poke through your memorabilia and dig out one of the adorable Mother’s Day cards they made for you back in the day. Thank goodness for Mrs Green and all the other wonderful elementary teachers!  And thanks to my dearest sons, Kendall and Riley who still melt my heart with every smile (even if it is just an emoji).

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all our favorite moms: our fabulous customers, our wonderful team members (Rebecca and Michelle), our incredible craftswomen, our inspiring consultant (Judy) and all our partners who keep this little mom-friendly business alive and thriving.

PS – Riley, You’re Next…

VFD was born in 1970 with the mission of creating the most beautiful and durable hardwood furniture possible. Once you see their work and run your hands across the baby-soft surface of their wood, I think you’ll agree with me – they’ve succeeded!

The Green Team at Vermont Woods Studios is always happy to get dirty on Green Up Day
We founded Vermont Woods Studios with a mission of conservation so maybe it’s not surprising that Green Up Day is a favorite holiday for us. The Green Team loves (OK doesn’t mind) getting dirty to celebrate it.

Green Up Day in Vermont

Every year over 22,000 volunteers from all across Vermont get together on Green Up Day to pick up litter from our parks, roadsides, beaches and other public spaces.  It’s a chance to get dirty and also an excuse for one of the Green Mountain State’s biggest parties.  All together about 250 Vermont towns are participating so that means 250 parties after clean up is done. Green Up instructions and contact information can be found here. It’s officially tomorrow, Saturday May 6 but if you can’t make it then, clean up whenever it’s convenient and log your participation here.
