Jewett Farms Studio – Welcome to the Neighborhood!
December 15, 2008
One of the most valuable pieces of GreenBridge’s work is making connections with local suppliers, designers and builders who share our goals – client satisfaction, highest quality of work and sustainable and healthful building practices. All of these are found in Jewett Farms & Company, who recently opened a studio and showroom at 58 Merrimac Street in Newburyport. Jewett has a long history of quality work – based in York, Maine, they recently expanded by opening their Newburyport studio. Jewett Farms has been active in our local SEED Green Building Group, and has even generously offered their beautiful new space for our meetings.
I met with partners Mike Myers and Elena Ruocco Bachrach recently at their studio and enjoyed seeing their displayed work and discussing their philosophy. In their custom cabinet ship Jewett Farms specializes in design that is timeless – which is a fundamentally sustainable concept. “Our goal is that you only need to buy the cabinetry or furniture pieces from us once,” Myers noted. “We focus on quality – great design, great materials and great products that last a lifetime.” I appreciated their dedication to beautiful work – labor-intensive detailing using quality materials, all of which are ‘green’ – no formaldehyde in their components, and low or no VOC in their finishes. They stand out from other suppliers who offer a ‘green’ product – Mike and Elena are committed to better and greener building and only offer products acceptable to these standards. They also offer a system of quality control that includes design to finish with a dedicated team and as Mike says, “No Drama”. (Nice!)
Check out their website at www.jewettfarms.com, or contact Mike or Elena at 978.222.3110 for a tour of their work. It’s great to have them local, and we look forward to partnering with them on future work.
