“It’s kind of a God thing — the wood seems to find me,” Urban Farmhouse co-owner Jason Thomas said.
Over the course of two years, Urban Farmhouse owners Jason and Cherami Thomas have grown the business from the garage of their rented house into 60,000 square feet of showroom and manufacturing space on S Western Avenue. Customers drive from as far away as Texas and New Mexico to purchase rustic-looking tables and chairs Urban Farmhouse has made from reclaimed wood.
