Our products are sourced from the Vermont and New York Slate Valley, a unique geological formation that runs between Vermont and New York states. This area is world famous for producing slate roofs and other residential, industrial, and commercial products for more than a century.
All of our products are treated and sealed to be food safe. Soapstone, chalk, crumbs, and liquids wipe off easily with a damp sponge or towel. Our cheese boards can also be washed with a sponge and dish soap. Boards that do not have cork feet on the bottom are dishwasher safe. To achieve a natural, rustic look, we use cutting tools that, over time, may lead to chipping along the edges of our slate goods. This is a natural occurrence and does not compromise the integrity of the slate. Portions of the engraved area of your slate cheese board may appear darker upon arrival. This is a natural occurrence and the result of food grade mineral oil seeping into the engraving. To remove a dark spot, wash the area with warm water and soap.
Slate is one of the most durable, naturally occurring stones readily available; slate shingles, which are found on home and building roofs across the country, typically withstand the elements for two hundred years or more. It is the stone that all synthetic tiles aspire to be. Just like slate roofing, our products are made to last. Our slate cheese boards and coasters are always at least 3/8" thick.
Personalize your 10"x14" slate cheese board with custom engraving. Unlike laser etching, our engraving process carves into the stone and will not wear down or fade with time. Engraving measures approximately 2” wide and can be placed in the center of the board. Each cheese board is packaged with a burlap bag alongside soapstone chalk and anti-slip padded feet.

Engraving requires four full business day for processing.
