Who are we?
We are Robert and Jennifer. Nice to meet you and thank you for visiting us on our website! We wanted to share a little bit about us so you can get to know us a little bit better. We both grew up in Central Virginia, were friends in high school, lost contact for more than 25 years, then reconnected in 2016. When we reconnected, we both shared dreams of owning a farm with lots of animals, as well as leaving a positive legacy for our children. As it turned out, God had even bigger plans than that! After finding a 60-acre farm in Marysville, OH to purchase (what we call our forever home), and giving it a name, Maple Cross Farm, the dream grew even bigger. Little did we know, from the beginning, the farm would launch Maple Cross Marketplace in Powell, OH, transform into a transport business (Trusted Transport), and pioneer a sawmill in Shelton, WA and Marysville, OH for our rare, exotic and hard-to-find wood products.
A little about each business…
Maple Cross Sawmill
With our state of the art sawmills in Shelton, WA and Marysville, OH, we obtain graded logs for your more standard projects, as well as disfigured and disregarded wood that other timber companies consider scrap for various reasons. We mill, dry and prep slabs to spec and make them available to wholesalers and retailers throughout the United States. By cutting out the middleman, we are able to keep our prices low. We work directly with loggers in the Pacific Northwest and Midwest to obtain a wide variety of options. We’ll custom cut specifically to suit your needs and will transport it to you when you need it.
Maple Cross Marketplace
Our Marketplace in Powell, OH, as well as our website, specializes in unique, one of a kind Live Edge Furniture, as well as chic, rustic/industrial-style home decor with a southwestern flair…all of the things we love. We also carry an array of rocks, minerals & gemstones, as well as jewelry, handbags, scarves, and many other unique gifts.
Our transport business is there when and if you need it. We will transport your large orders to your destination, safely and efficiently. within the contiguous United States.
What do we stand for?
Our passion for God’s natural resources, finding the hard-to-find, and our travels out west helped plant the seeds for where we are today. We live by faith, following God’s path for us wherever it leads. He has told us, if you can get people to stop calling My creations trash, I will bless you. We choose to share our blessings with you!
Thank you for visiting our website and we hope you take a moment to explore us.
