History is on display at Cane Farm Furniture.
This longtime family business is located on 88 acres in a rustic setting at 99 Kingwood-Stockton Road, just off Route 519 in Rosemont.
It is situated on the same property that was once the site of the Cane Poultry Farm. Charles Cane established the very successful hatchery in 1927, and at one time 600,000 chicks and chickens inhabited the incubators and chicken coops located there.
The family, including Charles’ son Phil, lived in a stone farmhouse, dating to 1822, which is still standing. In 1965, the family business changed direction, when current owner Phil Cane opened a woodworking business, with an emphasis on early American reproduction and Shaker-style furniture.
Phil had enjoyed woodworking as a boy, and it grew into a business that now includes his wife and office manager Carol, and sons Owen and Christopher. more
