From the Forty, LLC was established in 2004. \We specialize in making rustic log furniture made from white cedar that is harvested from our 40 acres of woodlands here in Door County.
Our showroom features handcrafted furniture, cribbage boards, wine caddies and custom signs made by us here in Door County. We also have unique gifts, accessories and Northwoods decor great for your home, cottage or cabin.
The name From the Forty is in honor of Geoff’s grandfather Harold Voeks. Ever since Geoff was little he remembers when his grandpa would get ready to head out the woods to go logging he would say “I am going to go get some logs From the Forty.” We started the business as a hobby with the skills Geoff had learned from his grandfather. We sold benches and stools in our front yard and at local farm/craft markets. It got to a point that we couldn’t keep up with orders plus hold a full time job. Geoff quit his job and started From the Forty LLC full time.
