Vermont fine furniture company receives $100,000 working lands grant award
Vermont Woods Studios online fine furniture to be awarded a $100,000 working lands Grant Award. The Vermont Woods Studios was selected to receive a $100,000 grant to be used to complete the construction and landscaping of Stonehurst, their Vermont made furniture showroom.
Once a rural farm property and former ski area, Stonehurst is being transformed into a destination furniture gallery featuring exclusively Vermont made hardwood furniture.
The working lands grant is intended to support businesses that work in Vermont’s agriculture and forest product sectors, in an effort to enhance business development and job creation.
Vermont Woods Studios markets and retails for many furniture workshops throughout the state, which in turn provides work for dozens of craftspeople and suppliers.
Vermont Woods Studios is currently open to the public while work is still underway, but anticipates completing the transformation by September 2013.
Governor Peter Shumlin will be presenting awards at 11 am on Tuesday, June 18th at Beaveher Brook Tree Farm in Marshfield, Vermont.
