Featured Artisan, JK Adams

One of my favorite vendors to visit is JK Adams. I hop in my car, head up Rt 8N to 20N then onto 7N. In less than 3 hours I am surrounded by The Green Mountain National Forest and I take in a big breath of fresh Vermont air. JK Adams is located in the quiet, picturesque town of Dorset, VT. Truth be told, I don’t usually go and pick up our orders. JK Adams is my one exception because they have an amazing retail store in-front of their manufacturing facility. Their retail space is dedicated to the heart of the home. The Kitchen. You can find everything you need to bake the perfect cake, roast and carve your Thanksgiving Day turkey, or to make the morning coffee. I can spend hours here.

Unfortunately, I do need to get down to business so I head to the office to pick up our order.  You can always tell when employees are happy. There is just an overall good vibe. JK Adams was founded in 1944 and many of their employees have been with them for years. They remain committed to producing high-quality kitchen products by hand from North American hardwoods. I could go on and on about the quality and craftsmanship, but I think it would be best to show you the process they go through to deliver products that they back with a 100% guarantee. Check out their video below and then decide for yourself if you need to own one of their exceptionally well made products!
