We began our story in 1995 with two gourds and five people. Today, we have offer over 250 products and have 20+ staff.  There is a large variety of gourds to choose from, and the showroom floor changes seasonally.  Visit during special weekends throughout the year to take tours and enjoy activities like gourd painting classes.
