Join Me in My New Venture

If you have followed my blog for any length of time you undoubtedly have figured out that I spent a lot of time in the outdoors. Over the last 2 years I have been working towards starting an outdoors based business, and after a year and a half of testing I have recently launched my new company – Hemlock Mountain Outdoors https://hemlockmountainoutdoors.com

With Hemlock Mountain Outdoors I will be selling handmade hammocks and outdoor gear made to order. Currently offering stand-alone hammocks, camping hammock systems (with hammock, tarp, bugnet and suspension included), suspensions, bugnets, tarps and rain flys all available on the website. I am also offering  Hemlock Mountain Outdoors T-Shirts available on Amazon.com

Stop by and check out what we have to offer.  We are based in North East Pennsylvania and strive to use all American made components and fabrics. All hammocks and gear are proudly made in the U.S.A.
