Vermont Farm Table Grows Business, Connection to Working Landscape
Congrats to our client in the news!
Vermont Farm Table was recently spotlighted in the following article from Vermont Business Magazine.
Dustin Glasscoe, owner of Vermont Farm Table, is quick to point to his team of woodworkers in Bristol when asked about being named 2017’s Vermont Woodworker of the Year. “I’m a business owner,” he clarifies, “not a woodworker.” While he may not be crafting the tables, stools and benches that earned him recognition from the Vermont Wood Works Council, he is unquestionably the visionary at the helm of his small and dedicated team. Glasscoe was named Woodworker of the Year in March.
Glasscoe grew up working in his dad’s woodshop, surrounded by sawdust, buzzing tools and the smell of fresh wood. But his passion for building dining tables grew from his love of good food and bringing people together to share a meal.
After spending a few years in the culinary world, Glasscoe moved to Vermont with the vision of starting and growing a business. Vermont’s entrepreneurial climate and myriad of artisan food producers– not to mention world-class skiing and hiking– drew him to the Green Mountain State in 2009.
“I wanted to build something I could be proud of in 30 years,” said Glasscoe.
If the first ten years are any indication, Glasscoe is well on his way to achieving that vision. Sales doubled last year and are projected to double again in 2018.
His current staff of 18 is rapidly moving toward 30 plus. The simple, functional design of Vermont Farm Table furniture is in demand by consumers, architects, and interior designers around the country, with high profile projects like the Trapp Family Lodge Bierhall now part of their portfolio.
