Raven Farms is in Bath, MI. It is near Lansing. I have purchased a lot of lumber from them are Kelvin the owner is really great to work with and his prices are amazing. I bought 260 bd. ft. of rough quarter sawn air dried red oak for $1 a bd. ft. All of the planks were at least 4/4 thick and 10 feet long. I would highly recommend him.

Wolverine is in Allegan, which is maybe a 15 minute drive from Kalamazoo. Tell them The Geek Group sent you. ;) They use all local wood, have a lot of oak and are super reasonable. They’re awesome.
