After Sandy Creek’s FFA sold its goats, they wanted to develop an animal project that would not only teach students how to care for the animals and sustain itself, but also give back to the school.

Project SC Feeders then came to life.

SC FFA Adviser and agriculture instructor Jacob Goldfuss said they wanted to treat SC Feeders as a business, giving students real-life experience in the cattle feeding business.

Going from goats to cattle was no small feat, and it took several months to prepare the facilities for the large animal, Goldfuss said.

Dutchman’s Woodshop opens in Harvard

Dutchman’s Woodshop opens in Harvard

Located on the main strip in Harvard, Dutchman’s Woodshop, owned by Frank and Luana Van Campen, pictured, officially opened for business Saturday, Nov. 28, and will again be open Saturday, Dec. 5. Starting in January 2021, the couple said they plan to be open the second Saturday of each month. ASHLEY D. SWANSON | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

Dutchman’s Woodshop opens in Harvard

The Van Campens create several different home furniture and decor all out of refurbished barnwood and fence boards, including framed mirrors, coffee tables, crosses, and signs. Additionally, the couple re-purposes old furniture, giving it a fresh coat of paint and polish. ASHLEY D. SWANSON | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

Dutchman’s Woodshop opens in Harvard

Everything has a history and when the couple de-constructs a barn they make sure to find out what that history is. On many of their creations, tags can be found with a photo of the barn in which the wood comes from, as well as a brief history on the back of how the barn came to be.

To be able to take something such as old barnwood and fashion it into something polished, unique and usable is a skill that requires patience, a knack for working with ones hands, and a creative mind.

For Frank and Luana Van Campen, such a skill is obvious in an endeavor that has spanned over the past seven years and has come to fruition in a business of their own called Dutchman’s Woodshop.

While the couple has been making pieces of furniture and other home decor since 2013 out of old barnwood, the Van Campens had a goal of always wanting a place where all of their creations could be in one building, and easily accessible to the public.

After speaking with and eventually renting a building from a friend, the couple set to work on the main street building in Harvard, painting and cleaning the interior, and putting up wood panels from older fence posts on one wall.
