When: Saturday, January 19  1:00PM

Berry’s Sawmill, Inc., was established in January 1941 by Bruce Berry’s  grandfather, Merrill, and his dad, Loren, in the center of downtown Cazadero. Over the years, the sawmill and lumberyard supplied lumber for many houses and structures as well as mining timbers for the Sonoma Quicksilver Mine and numerous other clients. But the old sawmill and property was only 3 acres, with insufficient power supply and not enough room for stacking logs and lumber. The family moved the sawmill to its present 32-acre location near Highway 116 and Cazadero Highway in 1979. It now produces about 50,000 bdft of Douglas fir or redwood lumber per eight-hour shift.

The company’s specialty is large timbers 32 feet long and shorter. Blanks are air dried before pattern stock is made. Berry’s can surface 6x16 timbers and smaller in the Yates American A-63 planer as well as make tongue-in-groove in 1 inch, 2 inch, and 3 inch thick and 1 inch v-rustic, also known as v-shiplap. They also make wide redwood and Douglas slabs for bars and countertops.


Directions to Berry's Mill: 23640 Hwy 116, Cazadero, CA 95421

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the meeting
