    Cliff, the 2 paddles came well ahead of our departure date for trip north, cheers! They're lovely and feel so solid and good in the hands. As a fellow woodworker and resourceful soul, I appreciate the product you deal in and thank you for the mindful and spirited craftsmanship. I'll be looking forward to making use of these in the years to come. Best, Ben, upstate NY

    Absolutley adorable! I got this for a baby shower gift and was nervous it wouldn't arrive in time but it was shipped right away and delivered with plenty of time! Thank you!

    Cliff did a tremendous job on this paddle! He was prompt to communicate on this custom order. It is absolutely beautiful to look at and such a smooth hold. Hoping for a nice fall day soon here to take it out.

    Absolutely beautiful! My husband is a Vermonter (and active duty military so not close enough to visit) and loved this! Excellent craftsmanship and quick delivery!

    I ordered and received the meat and cheese board for a Christmas present for my husband. They both look stunning and can't wait for him to open them. The owner was always quick to respond with questions and communication. Thank you for your time on there and talent.

Wood is a renewable resource.

Well managed forest stands are one of our most useful and productive natural resources. Not only does managed forest land produce oxygen, consume CO2, promote wildlife habitat, reduce erosion and promote water quality.... It's durned pretty! At Vermont Paddle Co. we work hard to bring you beautifully crafted, sustainable products that are elegant, traditional, durable, and light on the earth. Why do we do that?

Because wood is good. For the planet, for your conscience, and even for those seeing orbs you call eyeballs. Not only are our wood products organic, beautiful and rustic, but they are also good for the planet. All of our products are crafted using found, scavenged, reclaimed or sustainably harvested wood from right here in Vermont. We use minimal fossil fuels to produce and finish our work. This means that your new wooden piece does not contribute immensely to massive clear cutting of woodlands in East Undershoe, fracking the cuss out of some poor farm town in Middle Cornville, or damaging vulnerable wildlife species right in your own proverbial backyard.

We produce sane, sustainable and long lasting products from elegant renewable wood because while you're not going to go out and replace your entire kitchen with wooden utensils, or build yourself some solar powered wooden SmurtCur(patent pending?)... It's nice to have at least one beautiful hand carved wooden spoon in your cooking arsenal and nothing beats the feeling of dipping a hand made wooden paddle into a clear pristine lake in the early morning hours.

We love trees. We love timber products. We love tradition and innovation.
