We’re sending thanks out to everyone who gathered with us at Stonehurst this week to begin making Vernon, Vermont a Monarch Butterfly Way Station. If you’re interested in the environment and nature, please consider joining us in this fun project! You can learn more about our efforts to save the endangered monarch butterfly here.
Vernon has many master gardeners and butterfly enthusiasts! We shared some milkweed seedlings (the Monarch caterpillar’s only food source) and will begin planting them in our gardens and back yards. We’re also reaching out to the Vernon Elementary School VES, the recreation department and the roads commissioner, asking them to support the project by planting milkweed where appropriate on public land.
In August and September we will meet again when the Monarchs are laying their eggs and beginning their metamorphoses. Please contact us through our Facebook if you’re interested in joining our butterfly rescue project or starting one in your own town. It’s fun, and there’s wine. What more could you ask for?
While it might be hard to believe, winter is finally winding down here at Stonehurst. The snow is slowly melting, and some of our forest friends are starting to show their furry faces. Just yesterday, we saw this beautiful red fox frolic through the field in our backyard.
A pair of eastern bluebirds perched outside outside of my office window, enjoying the first real day of sunshine of the season.
And a chubby squirrel (a frequent visitor to the marketing office window) gorged himself on tasty bird seed.
We’ve seen plenty more forest critters getting ready for spring, and we’re getting ready too!
As you can see here, a wild Sales team member (Sean) anxiously awaits the warm weather! What about you? How are you preparing for spring?

Nina’s been on a mission to create beautiful photos of our shaker and craftsman dining furniture for all you online shoppers out there. She’s been snapping pictures in historic buildings all over town, including our Stonehurst showroom, the Governor Hunt House, Malhana Farm, George’s Mill and even the Vernon Chapel.
Well, first we had to have that furniture crafted in studios and workshops around Vermont. And now that Nina’s finished taking photos, what are we going to do with all these tables & chairs & china cabinets? We don’t have a lot of extra room to store it, so we’ve put everything on sale!
So that’s a few of the Shaker and Craftsman style dining furniture pieces we’ve currently got in our showroom today. If you’re passing through Vermont to ski or visit friends, stop by and see us at Stonehurst. We’re on your way — just 6 miles off Interstate I 91, from the Bernardston exit # 28A. Stop by today, while everything’s on sale and take home the Vermont made dining furniture you’ve always dreamed of!

We’re in the middle of winter here in Vermont but elsewhere in America people must be preparing for Spring. We’re getting lots of inquiries about our POLYWOOD all weather Adirondack chairs. It seems we’re not the only ones unwilling to haul outdoor furniture back and forth from the basement every year.
Unlike the wooden chairs above, today’s all weather Adirondack chairs are made of recycled plastic milk jugs or POLYWOOD. They offer the traditional design that’s proved itself comfy for generations along with new state of the art plastics technology that makes these chairs super durable. POLYWOOD holds up against harsh weather such as rain, snow, ice, and salt water. It’s insect, mold and mildew resistant, requires no maintenance and even comes with a lifetime guarantee. Best of all, there are over a dozen colors to choose from and you’ll never have to touch up or paint (POLYWOOD’s color runs all the way through each recycled plastic board).
So, let us know which Adirondack chair (wood or POLYWOOD) and which seasonal setting (winter in the mountains or summer on the lake) you prefer on Facebook.
