A sprig of balsam

held between thumb 

and forefinger

 

Scent of cedar

piercing the chill dawn

 

The soft sigh of pine

soughing in evening

 

Are as much a prayer

as any

Hello Friends,

 

Unfortunately due to the summer drought and worsening Spruce Bud Worm infestation we are not able to sell Holiday Wreaths this year. 

 

Best wishes & take care,

Fresh Handmade Balsam Wreaths

We hand-weave our wreaths from fresh balsam, pine, and cedar sustainably harvested from our surrounding forests, and decorate with pinecones, princess pine, imitation berries, and a weatherproof red velvet bow. We think of them as a circular forest because they incorporate so many pieces of our beautiful surrounding woods. They measure approximately 24" in diameter and will be shipped out starting the last week of November unless you specify otherwise.

Minnesota Wild Rice

We hand harvest our wild rice from the lakes and rivers of Northern Minnesota.  This is not the same as most commercial "wild" rice found in stores, which has been farmed in monoculture paddies. True Minnesota wild rice grows naturally in shallow lakes and rivers where it is harvested by using long sticks to bend over the stalks and knock the ripe grain into the bottom of a canoe. This is then parched and threshed at a mill. The result is a nutty flavor full of the richness and variety provided by our native wetlands. Add a wild rice package to a wreath or order some separately. Recipes are included.
