The Ox Equipment & Repair Shop
This building was originally built to house a flock of turkeys. In the winter of 2018/2019 it was converted to a workspace for making and repairing draft animal equipment. The ox equipment & repair shop is the place to get a wide range of custom-built equipment including ox yokes (single or double), logging scoots, stone-boats, and three and four bar sleds with roller nose and pole.
Hardwoods and softwoods, specific to the needs of the project, are harvested from our woodlot. The logs are yarded from the woods to the landing using ox power, and then long hauled by the farms team of draft horses to the water powered sawmill. On occasion we will purchase logs locally, if the need cannot be met by our forest inventory.
