Fletchers’ Mill is proud to be “Made in USA”. We craft our wood pepper mills, salt mills and rolling pins in our factory in New Vineyard, Maine. We also source many materials and parts from local and regional vendors.
Who is Fletchers’ Mill?
In 1971, brothers Wayne and Earl Fletcher mortgaged their homes and took ownership of an antiquated wood mill. Wayne’s sons Doug, Gary and Jody have owned and operated the business since 1994. All 3 of these brothers worked at the company for years before taking ownership. Each slowly graduated from sawmill workers to machine operators, to mechanics, to supervisors. Today, around 100 people are employed at our factory located in the lakes and mountain region.
Today the Fletcher family business has its own modernized sawmill. Logs are purchased from local loggers and processed into boards, squares and dowels. The wood is then dried in one of 6 kilns. Once prepared the wood is then introduced into the manufacturing facility where it is turned or molded into one of thousands of various items the mill produces. As Doug Fletcher likes to say “From raw logs to the finished product the entire process is done in house and under a watchful eye. That is why the Fletchers are proud to say Made in Maine, Guaranteed for Life.”
Fletchers’ Mill supports Sustainable Forest Practices within our Supply Chain. Sustainability has a positive impact on workers and our surrounding communities, resulting in a positive economic and environmental impact in the forests and woodlands of our region. By working to promote environmentally and socially beneficial policies, our local communities and society benefit. In addition, we also recycle all of our wood waste and wood generated from the manufacturing process.
