giveaway: hand carved cherry wood cutting board by walnut hollow workshop
As we near the end of November those of us who live in climates with four seasons begin to say farewell to the farmers markets. Over the warmer months we’ve met many vendors selling wide varieties of fresh produce. But, of course, produce is not the only thing that you will find; honey, beeswax candles, soaps, alpaca wool and that is just that start of it.
It is at the farmers market in Fredericksburg, Virginia that we met the folks who are Walnut Hollow Workshop. Their booth was the epitome of what a farmers market mean. “Walnut Hollow is a small, family run farm located in Caroline County, VA. At their booth you will find a variety of products, including eggs, honey, beeswax, and handmade wooden bowls, spoons, cutting boards, and rolling pins, all made from natural and locally grown materials and wood. All unique hand carved pieces are carved by Sy Jarvis using hand tools; he does not spin wood on a lathe or use power tools. You’ll also find beautiful bouquets of cut flowers and sometimes peacock feathers from the peacocks on their farm. “
On the rare occasion you will find Sy Jarvis sitting on a chair, tools at his side, carving any number of items. He is a fine craftsman. Because Jarvis may be working elsewhere on market day it is usually his wife and children that typically tend the booth. They are not only beautiful, but pleasant and down to earth. We get to the farmers market as often as possible, but when we are unable to go it is just really nice to know that Walnut Hollow Workshop is there, at their booth.
We would like to offer you a beautifully hand carved cutting board, made by Jarvis, and homemade wood wax as our give away this month. This cutting board is simple and beautiful. No two cutting boards made are the same and it is fun to see the different shapes and sizes. We like to imagine that each piece of wood carved has its own personality, giving the cutting board its look.
The cutting board we picked out was one of the longer ones available. With the holiday season many of us will put out crackers and cheese for guests. Crackers, cheese, grapes displayed on this cutting board will create a beautiful focal point on your buffet table. The cutting boards are guaranteed for life, but believe us; they are fairly indestructible…unless, of course, you burn it. (It happens. Take our word for it.) Take care of your board, use the wax and it will last a lifetime.
