We are fortunate to work with made in the USA companies that value their retailers! The story of these gourds was a rare combination of circumstances that involved one curious farmer, a few dried gourds and a whole lot of ingenuity. The in-between of then and now has been filled with Wows, Ya-Hoos, Round-n-Abouts, Giddyups, Oh Noooooos, the frequent and delightful Oooooos, Aaaaahhhhhssss, tempered by the occasional screams of agony. The initial inspiration belonging to Ben Bear has now spread to those who work and play together as they hand craft each gourd they make and it is now theirs alone. Over the years it is the enthusiasm of those who delight in what they create that sustains these moments of inspiration. To always try harder, always do better and because of this they know each gourd that leaves their farm will find a warm home in which to live.
