Visitors have the opportunity to create their own, personalized keepsake in this experience. Working directly with our farmer, the group will head to the woods to take down a tree the old fashioned way and drag it back to the village with Tartan, our 12 year old Canadian draft horse. Once back at the woodworking shop, the group will use a two person buck saw to slice rounds off of the log. The slices will then be branded with Orwell’s logo using our branding iron in the forge. Once branded, they can choose to leave the piece round or cut out the pattern of the logo on our foot powered treadle saw. Experience is accompanied by a traditional meal, served in the community hall!

Half-day experience (3 hours). Reservations required. 12 person maximum, $40 per person (+ HST).

***Available in: English, French, Arabic, Herbrew, Swedish, Danish and Berber.
