About Us


In a world with a constant desire to keep up with the latest trend, we hope to bring something a little different to the retail space.

Our intent is that the customer feels a deeper sense of connection to the items in our shop. Items that have intent. Objects that are handmade. A one-of-kind piece of art. An item that brings you joy with each use.

We value simplicity and purpose, and we hope to share our minimalist design style with a larger audience.


Hazel Oak Farms uses high quality lumber and live-edge wood slabs. Our building materials are locally sourced here in Iowa to create beautiful, one-of-a-kind furniture designs.

Hazel Oak Farms specializes in building tables, desks, wall clocks, cutting boards, and more.

Iowa has one of the largest ranges of hardwoods to select from. With a wide variety of wood characteristics to choose from, we intend that every product you buy in our shop will tell a story.


Hazel Oak Farms has a passion for creating unique & beautiful furniture; furniture that can be passed down from generation to generation.

Each item in our shop is handmade. We design our furniture using superior woodworking & metal work skills.

The style of our furniture and home decor items are modern, farmhouse, and industrial in style. Every piece is handmade by us.
