Join Jewett Farms + Co and the Innovation and Design Building as we strive to make the holidays merry for many children in Boston and for you!

Pop into our Boston Design Center Showroom anytime during the month of December to drop off an unwrapped toy for our Toys for Tots gift drive and we will give you a handmade wooden ornament as a thank you to the first 40 givers. Leave your name and email with us and we’ll enter you into a raffle for a selection of JF Workshop goodies including hardwood cheese and cutting boards, soapstone whiskey stones and other lovely treats.

We’re open Monday to Friday from 9am – 5pm. Come by, share a toy and spread the joy this holiday season.

The Jewett Farms + Co. Off Cuts Initiative is designed to reduce waste, increase creativity and provide a valuable contribution to our community and our environment. All the products in our workshop are made from materials that would traditionally be thrown away. Hardwoods cut from our cabinetry and furniture pieces, premium soapstone left from sink cutouts or countertop remainders.

50% of profits are returned to the JF Sustainability Venture, a fund set up specifically for equipment and projects that will help Jewett Farms + Co. reduce our waste and increase our sustainability. Our first purchase will be a Briquette Press. Every day our cabinetshop ends up with pounds of saw dust, not much use to us but the perfect material to feed into a Briquette Press and create a 100% recycled bio-fuel. The briquette press is the first in a long list of innovative and creative plans – all with the goal of bringing JF+Co to the forefront of environmentalism in business.

50% of profits from our Off Cuts Initiative are donated to Team Trevor, a local Maine non-profit whose grassroots fundraising efforts have contributed over 1 million dollars to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Team Trevor’s mission was created in 1999, when Trevor was diagnosed with CF at five months old. Trevor’s future resides in the hands of researchers and research doesn’t come cheap. Twenty years ago there was ample research money and very little technology. Today the inverse is true; ample technology exists but it is expensive. Team Trevor was born out of love for Trevor with the goal of raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to fund research—research that will change the future for people living with CF.
