When we can’t buy local, we try to ensure there is a valid reason to buy beyond Ohio. Iron & Wood tools are a good example. Tuli Fisher in Bozeman, Montana handcrafts each of these hand-forged steel tools using a design based on functional, time-tested implements found in traditional agricultural communities. They aren’t made in Ohio but they last a lifetime making them a smart, sustainable investment. BioLogic in Pennsylvania is another great example. These folks specialize in natural pesticide controls and supply us with ladybugs, beneficial nematodes and praying mantises that help keep your outdoor space pesticide free.
