Nestled in the small town of Lebanon along the Maine/New Hampshire border sits Tuckaway Tree Farm, a registered State of Maine tree farm owned and operated by Lynne Park and Susan Adams.
Our original concept for Tuckaway was just as a Christmas tree farm. But as our business grew so did our aspirations. Tuckaway Tree Farm is now available as a unique, natural-event venue. Tuckaway offers a contemplative, peaceful setting for weddings, business and wellness retreats, family reunions and artist workshops. It’s the perfect place to unplug from the distractions of daily life and plug into a personal experience that you’ll remember for years to come.
We hope our farm will provide the same inspiration and memories for others as it has for us over the years.
Lynne sees herself as a steward of the woods at Tuckaway Tree Farm. Her deep respect for nature expresses itself in the items that she skillfully turns on her lathe. She has a great appreciation for wood and especially for the ability to create meaningful items that will hold sentimental value for generations to come. Items that will help carry stories and memories forward as generations grow.
While turning a piece of wood, Lynne strives to find and reveal the beauty of each piece of wood to expose and highlight its natural characteristics. She only uses locally-sourced wood that has already come down and never cuts healthy trees down for her items. She also loves making custom pieces for people who want to preserve memories to pass down from one generation to the next.
While Lynne enjoys turning larger items like bowls and rolling pins, Sue focuses her attention on smaller functional and utilitarian pieces, such as pen and letter opener sets, seam rippers for leather makers and sewers, carpenter and artisan pencils, key chains, Christmas and window ornaments, magnifying glasses, stylus, spurtles, honey dippers, and mortar and pestles. She utilizes beautiful local as well as exotic woods. And to ensure nothing goes to waste, Sue also utilizes small pieces left over from Lynne’s turnings.
Since many of the items she makes also require other parts, Sue ensures that the other components for her pieces are as high quality as the wooden item she crafts. In this way she can ensure every pen set, magnifying glass, ornament and other pieces meet her exacting standards and will last a lifetime. As with Lynne, Sue enjoys creating unique custom gifts for customers, creating heirlooms for generations to come.
