Hood Farms and Sawmill - Adrian Kenz and Jules on Tractor

Our Story

Welcome, and thanks for stopping by. I’m Adrian Hood, owner of Hood Farms and Sawmill, and we’re so glad you’re here. 

First and foremost, I’m a farmer — committed to raising animals the way it was done 100 years ago and producing premium wood products, including live-edge slabs and local hardwoods.

As a young boy I often visited my Great grandpa's cattle farm. I built many fond memories during my time there, all of which helped to shape my vision and dreams for the future.

With help from my dad, we cleared about 10 acres of trees from our property in order to make more pasture for our Red Devon cows. Little did we know while clearing the woods that this would result in the creation of our own lumber business! 

What began as a dream to own a small hobby farm, has grown into a full scale operation. We raise grass fed beef, and sell hardwood lumber and offer a custom drying service with our premium vacuum kiln. 

Our Family

We have three children: Mackenzie, Juliette, and Liam. My wife has the wonderful privilege of being a stay at home mama and has so much fun watching them grow and learn here at Hood Farms. They love all the animals, riding in the tractor with daddy, and spending lots of time making memories as a family. 

It's a wonderful life, and we’d love to show you around if you’re local. Contact us to learn more about our farm and to schedule a visit.

What Makes Us Different

vacuum kiln dried wood

Vacuum Kiln-Dried Wood

Freshly sawed wood is known as “green wood”, which has the potential to warp and crack when you put it in your home. At Hood Farms, we specialize in producing a truly premium product. We don’t sell any green wood. Everything is kiln-dried in house, which removes all of the moisture and gets it ready to work into furniture. 

Our vacuum kiln is specially designed to to dry thicker stock, which allows us to saw larger slabs — as wide as 76 inches! If you’re looking for a specific size and don’t see it on our website, give us a call. We’d be happy to discuss your options when it comes to customized natural wood slabs.

Custom Kiln Drying

We specialize in drying lumber with our state-of-the-art vacuum kiln driers. They are known for producing the flattest lumber,and for leaving the brightest and most vibrant colors. We custom dry for individuals up to large sawmills. With the vacuum kilns you can get your wood stock back months before you would from a conventional kiln. For more details and pricing please get in touch with Adrian.

Grass Fed Beef

Our grass-fed beef is raised humanely and how nature intended, with no hormones or antibiotics added. Due to demand, Hood Farms partners with a few other local farms that adhere to the same stringent management styles we raise our animals with, so even if your beef doesn't come straight from our pastures, you can still be assured you are getting a premium product with the best grazing practices we can offer. Currently, we offer ground beef in 1-lb. packages for $7.99/lb. Contact us for more details or to place an order.
