why this product

Slate is one of the most durable, naturally occurring stones readily available. It has been used to make highly trafficked walkways, as well as surfaces that see a great deal of use and abuse, such as laboratory benches and billiard tabletops. Slate shingles, used on roofs all over the world, are capable of withstanding the elements for more than two centuries.

Its nonporous nature means it can hold up to the meltiest, most oozing Taleggio or the stinkiest of Epoisses.

The rustic look of the boards is achieved through the use of a slate cutter and other tools, which may lead to chipping along the edges over time — a natural process that contributes to its beauty and does not diminish its usefulness. Each board is one of a kind.

The slate is treated and sealed to be food safe. Soapstone, chalk, crumbs, and liquids wipe off easily with a damp sponge or towel. The board can also be washed by hand and is dishwasher-safe.

use & care

Wipe clean with a damp sponge or towel, or if the board needs more thorough cleaning, wash by hand with dish soap or in the dishwasher. To maintain the slate's appearance and protect its integrity, wipe down with a drop or two of food grade mineral oil about twice a year.

production & design

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.
