The Original Pig Cutting Board Family since 1981
While living on Toland Farm in Wynnewood PA, I started making these hard maple pig cutting boards for friends and family. The first pigs came from a large sugar maple tree I cut down on the McFarland estate in Wynnewood just before the property was developed.
Now over 30 years later we are a husband wife team making these same pigs. I hand select every piece of lumber that goes into making these pigs from the finest hardwood available. each pig is hand cut, hand sanded and hand filed. then a coat of mineral oil is applied by hand. All our pigs are made with love and care. One by one.
Pigs - German-natives have a saying "Schwein gehabt (had Pig)" which literally means "Good Luck is at Hand".
Among the Chinese and the Europeans, charms in the shape of Pigs, are believed to have the power to bring Good Luck, as they are a symbol of riches and wealth.
The Pig in Chinese mythology is a symbol of honesty, tolerance, initiative and diligence.
