Where we get the material from

Many varied types of buildings used stone elements as part of their structure, from early colonial residences using long granite planks as foundation stones, to 19th-century mills using granite for sills and thresholds.

Shapes and Dimensions

Of all the material Stone Farm harvests, sections of old buildings give us the biggest range of shapes, sizes and just plain unique and varied pieces of old stone.  

Many shapes and dimensions are repurposed. We are always seeking out the unique and unusual.

Colors and Textures

Since these stones were part of old buildings they were often cut, carved or had their surfaces textured, we think of them as having more refined surfaces.  We often collaborate with our customers and designers to transform what may look like an odd shaped piece of stone into something very elegant and functional.

Sill and Thresholds

Across New England, there are thousands of old mill buildings that no longer serve their original purpose.  Most of these buildings had window sills and lintels made of granite.  The doorways often had wide granite thresholds. When these buildings come down Stone Farm reclaims these handsome stone artifacts.

Ornamental Pieces

In the bigger cities across New England, many old buildings were adorned with hand carved stone pieces. The artistic beauty of the pieces is often exceptional.
