Making Road Stakes for the Farm

Recycling and repurposing as many natural resources as possible is always a big priority here at my Bedford, New York farm.

Whenever we complete a project, we always save whatever materials are left over in case they can be used at a later time - especially scrap wood. Any wood that is not put through a sawmill to make usable lumber, or thrown in a big tub grinder to make mulch, is used to create dozens of  stakes for use on all the carriage roads. These road stakes are so important in winter when everything is covered in snow. I am always glad we have them to mark where the roads meet the grassy lawns and garden beds. And, every single one is made right here at my farm.
