About

Follow the Goathopper

I've always had a thing for clocks and color so in 2014, I started Goathopper in the NW corner of my one car garage. Goathoppers mission is to use reclaimed pallet wood to create handmade rustic wall art that doubles as a curiously cool clock. In addition to being recycled, pallet wood is an ideal medium because it's tough as nails, no two planks are alike and each has its own character rich story to tell.

I've never met a tree I didn't like. Realizing that none are sacrificed in crafting our clocks, it only seemed natural to go one step further by honoring the wood and planting a tree for each Goathopper clock sold.

Some of my achievements in chronological order include:
• In the 4th grade I ate 23 servings of candied yams in 4 minutes. A Davis cafeteria record that stands today.
• I received undergraduate and master’s degrees from Virginia Commonwealth University in Mass Communications and Business respectively.
• I have mastered the color TV remote control and modern outdoor string trimmer.
• Most recently, I was ex-communicated from the local smallmouth fishing club for being too loud.
In answer to your question "What is a Goathopper?"

It is legend that in many Caribbean villages there used to exist a man called the Goathopper. For landowners, he would scour their fields and collect all of the dried goat dung, prized for its use as a fuel and in making coffee. As payment for his service he would keep 1/2 of the day's dung collection and offer it for sale on his route. Goathoppers were a cheerful and happy go lucky sort and were quick with an amusing joke or story. Our mission is to infuse the Goathopper's spirit into every handmade clock.

WILL MY CLOCK LOOK JUST LIKE THE ONE SHOWN?
Years of pallet duty in the elements impart each plank with its own unique grain, coloring and topography. Your Goathopper clock will not be identical to the one shown, nor should it. It is made and meant only for you.

HOW QUICKLY WILL I RECEIVE MY CLOCK?
We could make you a clock in a day, but it would show. The real deal takes 1 to 2 weeks. Only then does it earn the famous Goathopper seal and logo on the face. We've been told it’s well worth the wait.
