PLEASE CALL TO BOOK YOUR VISIT AT LEAST 24 HOURS IN ADVANCE OF ARRIVAL.

Because of reputation, methods and commitment, the History Channel chose Jason Rutledge and his "Biological Woodsmen" as the newest addition to their top-rated television show, Ax Men.  Now you can meet and visit with the crew on site, in the woods, doing what they do best...logging with horses and practicing Restorative Forestry.  There's a lot more to it than "horse logging".  Restorative Forestry is about changing the way we manage our forests to insure that we have enough trees left to meet human needs for generations to come.  You may see how these magnificent horses are trained to do this important work.  "As we learn more about the environment, the importance of the forests becomes very clear. Our group builds a bridge between heritage based cultural practices and modern concern for the environment." - Jason Rutledge

Jason Rutledge is Founder and President of the Board for the Healing Harvest Forest Foundation (HHFF). Through the HHFF Apprenticeship Program, Jason and other HHFF trained practitioners train apprentices to practice this method of Restorative Forestry that actually improves the quality of the remaining forest, while producing "Green Certified" forest products through the DRAFTWOOD program.
