BAFIA and Harvest Hastings start the Local Wood Initiative

Bancroft Area Forest Industry Association (BAFIA) is very excited to begin the Local Wood Initiative.  We have all heard how important it is for the environment to buy our food locally when ever possible, what about our wood?  BAFIA would like to support our members and our local wood manufacturers, building contractors, artisans, furniture makers, cabinet makers, basically anybody working with wood.   Supporting these business will help our industry, our community and our environment.

Over the next year you will start to see businesses being profiled on both the BAFIA website and on Harvest Hastings.  Along with an article featuring the owners and their operations you will be able to find the products that these business sell, hours of operation, contact information and more.   Get in contact with us if you feel your business would be eligible for this or if you have any questions regarding this project.  This is a “local” wood initiative and we realize that some business may not be able to use local wood, but we will give preference to businesses who use local wood where possible in some part of their product.  This initiative is a partnership between BAFIA, Hastings County and  Harvest Hastings.
