We source quality logs to provide quality lumber.

From Logs to Lumber

At Willy’s Mill we skillfully transform rough timber into finely crafted building materials using sustainable and ecologically responsible practices.

We employ local craftspeople to provide meaningful work in economically depressed regions while respecting the environment through responsible harvesting and reforestation. As our market expands, we will replicate our manufacturing facilities into other regions to help keep our carbon footprint small and our products affordable. The net result is a triple bottomline organization working to increase community vitality, economic prosperity, and environmental quality.

Our Products

No job is too small, or too big.

With the only mill in the state capable of cutting up to 30' boards, we are confident in saying we are the only one-stop shop for lumber in New York. Each piece of finished lumber is milled by master craftsmen to commercial specifications and kiln dried to help keep your project straight and true.

Our Culture/History

Two partners sat down one day to discuss possible ways to secure more affordable building materials for their various real estate projects while addressing the economic challenges of their community.

As they brainstormed different ideas, it occurred to them that they could create a model that could be easily replicated into other communities with similar challenges. From there, they then began building an 8,000 sf mill complete with 3 types of saws capable of transforming rough timber into finely crafted building materials.

To support their goal of a customer-centric culture they began developing an experienced team to foster strong relationships with builders, farmers, and homeowners - who demand high quality products, competitive pricing, timely deliveries, and competent support staff. As a local business, Willy's Mill is committed to excelling in these areas while being friendly and respectful to customers of all sizes.
