Most of ya'll know, The Harvest Trail Journey's wood products are made using sustainable wood pieces by "The Meat Man" and I for the shop, but did you know we try to implement sustainable practices in our daily lives too? We have systems in place to catch rain water (a constant work in progress), we also use a drip irrigation system in our garden to insure the least amount of water use possible, our garden compost is made from restaurant material waste and recycled wood products, we even make some of our own homemade cleaning products and have just ventured into wearing more sustainably attained attire.

JORD Wrist Watches
JORD wrist watches, are beautiful in every way! JORD Watches use only 100% natural sustainably sourced wood to make their wrist watches. Score! We are so happy to find a like minded company.

A great majority of the wood they use comes from furniture remnants (they are after my heart, I swear). From those pieces, a team hand chooses pieces based on the grain, the coloring, and the density of the wood so that the finished piece looks uniform (we know first hand this takes a long time).

It's made from Koa wood, the interior is rose gold, and the hours are trimmed with 21 jewels. The movement, another sustainable feature, remains in motion by a self-winding system which I prefer to searching and replacing watch batteries (how many watches stay in your jewelry box because they need batteries?). This really is a perfect
