Made in Vermont

Exclusively for UncommonGoods

The Bread & Butter(fly) Serving Board was designed by UncommonGoods' Product Development team and produced by J.K. Adams.

The J.K. Adams Company was founded in Dorset, VT in 1944, by Josiah Adams. In 1949, the Cooper family purchased the company and has owned it ever since. In the early years, the company produced wooden drafting equipment, slide rules, and surveying equipment. The company also did contract wood manufacturing and produced products such as wooden shoe shine boxes. As technology started to replace many of these products, the company started to design and manufacture cutting boards and other housewares. Some of the houseware innovations attributed to J.K. Adams are angled knife blocks, in-drawer knife racks and numerous innovative cutting board designs. The company now employs 48 people, many of whom have been with the company for over twenty years. The company has been from it founding and remains committed to operating in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.

Each item in the Uncommon Collection meets five important standards. Here's how Bread & Butter(fly) Serving Board qualified for the Collection:

Original Design

Inspired by the form of a butterfly and the associated wordplay, the Bread & Butter(fly) Serving Board offers a practical and attractive way to present bread and butter. The design is a playful interplay of form and function: shaped like a butterfly's wings in profile, the solid maple board features channels that add detail to the wings and also trap crumbs from slicing bread, while the butterfly's body incorporates a removable slate butter server that naturally helps to keep butter cool and fresh.

Responsible Business Practices

mission statement

"Our mission is to put a J.K. Adams product in the hands of every person who is passionate about their kitchen, about the food they make, and about the connections made while entertaining with good food and good friends. We will design and produce products that are exceptional from a functional, aesthetic, and quality standpoint and will always stand by them with a full 100% replacement guarantee. We will continually work to prove that well run companies with committed and customer focused employees can grow and prosper by producing high quality products in an environmentally and socially responsible manner in the United States."

fair wage

J.K. Adams pays employees a starting wage of $12/hr., which exceeds Bennington County's living wage.

- Local (Vermont State) minimum wage: $10
- Federal minimum wage: $7.25
- Living wage of Bennington County: $10.18

paid time off

All full time employees receive 9 paid holidays and earn PTO based on years of service, from 1 to 4 weeks. They also receive 3 paid personal days off per year, available on January 1st and to be used within the calendar year.

recycling primary/secondary materials

J.K. Adams recycles all of its primary material (wood). All of their scrap and by-product pieces of wood are collected and burned in one of two wood-burning furnaces, which in turn reduces their dependence on fossil fuels. The sawdust they generate is collected in two 20-foot containers and sold to local dairy farms.

charitable giving

J.K. Adams has a long history of supporting local charities. These non-profit organizations include their local library, an organization focused on their local forests, a local theater, and organizations focused on numerous health and educational issues. In 2014, they provided these organizations with financial and product donations for events and auctions totaling $10,000.

The company supports local farmers and producers. During the summer months, a local farm operates a produce stand two days a week from in front of their building, and in the winter, they host the Sunday Dorset Farmers Market in their manufacturing facility
