Make yourself and those veggies happy this year. Use the BURLIN!

We are proud to announce our BURLIN basket is featured in the Summer 2012 issue of the Heirloom Gardener Magazine.

The BURLIN, respectfully named after my deceased father, is a garden harvesting basket handcrafted on our small farm located in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. The baskets design allows you to easily gather and hose off your harvested fruits and vegetables prior to bringing them indoors.

The baskets are very versatile and therefore make a great gift. They can also be used as a decorative item in the home or can be used as a picnic basket, for knitting materials, floral arrangements, a fruit basket, magazine holder and a neat way to serve up breads and rolls at Thanksgiving and other family gatherings.

The handles of our baskets are made from old tobacco sticks garnered from the family barn. The sides of the baskets that hold the round tobacco stick handle in place are made out of hardwood insuring their durability for years to come. Each basket is unique with rustic characteristics that have been naturally fashioned into the wood as a result of the many years in which the sticks purpose was to hang tobacco leaves to dry in the barn.

Non-toxic food grade mineral oil has been applied to the wood to help prevent water absorption and maintain the integrity of the wood. The wire mesh is made from weather resistant galvanized steel.

BURLIN harvest baskets are available in small, medium and large sizes. Small Bitty BURLIN baskets measure 12Lx6Wx10½H. Our medium sized baskets are 16Lx8Wx11½H and the large baskets are 20Lx10Wx11½H. This particular listing is for a large sized BURLIN basket and l sell for$45.
See additional item listings for the small and medium sized baskets that sell for $30 and $39.This basket has a 6” height from the top of the basket to the handle leaving plenty of room to easily place items in the baskets. Items shown inside the basket are not included with purchase.

Each BURLIN basket is truly one of a kind with some history crafted into each one.
Soon you too will be saying, “Bring me the BURLIN and let’s go to the garden!”
