Crafting Sustainability, Creativity, and Fun

Welcome to SHAFFER CRATE & TOY, a proud initiative of Shaffer Farm & Foods, where we turn waste wood into wonders. Nestled in the heart of our commitment to sustainability and innovation, our business breathes new life into discarded wood, transforming it into handcrafted farm crates and imaginative building blocks for all ages. Our mission? To keep craftsmanship alive, divert waste from landfills, and spark joy through eco-conscious creativity.

Our Craftsmanship

At SHAFFER CRATE & TOY, we celebrate the art of woodworking, employing skilled craftsmen and women who bring our vision to life with their hands and hearts. By offering a living wage, we not only support our local community but also ensure the highest quality and care in every piece we create. From cedar to fir and maple, we select a variety of woods to craft our products, each chosen for its durability, beauty, and environmental footprint.

Our Products

Our flagship offering, the Shaffer Grand Building Block set, embodies our ethos of playful learning and environmental responsibility. Contained in a large, handcrafted crate, this set includes an array of shapes and sizes, perfect for builders of all ages to explore their creativity while appreciating the natural beauty of wood.

For those who enjoy a bit of spirited competition, we've introduced Tipsy Towers—a game designed for adults to infuse fun into any gathering. Whether as a party centerpiece or a unique drinking game, Tipsy Towers promises laughter and challenges, making it an instant favorite.

Sustainability at Our Core

Every product from SHAFFER CRATE & TOY is a step towards a greener planet. By repurposing waste wood, we not only prevent valuable resources from ending up in landfills but also reduce the carbon footprint associated with new material production. Our approach extends the lifecycle of wood, capturing its carbon within our products and keeping it out of the atmosphere.
