During this holiday season we hope your ties to family and sense of community is strong, welcoming and comforting.  Gift giving can often turn stressful when searching for ‘the perfect gift’.  This year, MFBF wants to help with that!
The Montana Made Gift Guide show cases Montana Farm Bureau Members, their entrepreneurial spirits and the great products they create.  If you’d like to support rural Montana and local businesses this holiday season, we’ve got some great ideas for you!

Cedar Rose Woodworking

Chris Rasmussen, owner and artist behind Cedar Rose Woodworking, makes flower vases from native wood using Juniper, Willow, Cottonwood, Russian Olive and other woods harvested from his farm and surrounding farms and ranches.  Chris uses a variety of finishes, including oils, waxes and French Polish and each vase has a glass liner, so they hold water and are signed and numbered. Chris works full time in his studio and on their small vegetable farm outside of Three Forks. 

Cedar Rose Woodworking vases are sold at art shows, galleries and gift stores in Montana.

“I love to find light and beauty in overlooked and ordinary things.  Each vase is remarkable and individual. They are a little piece of Montana that bring the beauty of the outdoors inside your home. I love how happy they make folks, and getting pictures of my vases from the collectors with flower arrangements from all over the country!”-Chris Rasmussen, Cedar Rose Woodworking
