Gallion Ridge Farms Welcomes You

Your lumber closer to home

Photograph by Wendy Hodge

Hey y’all!  I’m Michael Schmolitz; I own and manage Gallion Ridge Farms here in Blacksburg Virginia.  In the mid 1950’s my grandparents, Brownie and Maude Saunders, began farming this land to provide their family with food and a way of life.  I’m blessed to be able to continue their legacy.

Raising cattle and pigs and working at my sawmill are what I do for fun.  It’s a bonus that my hobbies have grown into a small business! I’m thankful for the support of my customers, friends and family.

From my family to yours,

Michael Schmolitz

Clearing out trees, and buying your logs

This year we started removing trees for local farmers who need them off fence lines or even clearing out a bunch of trees to open up the view of the mountains and to open up for more pasture land. We also will buy your logs.

When  building furniture with our lumber sometimes you may need hooks, bells, or maybe a bracket for your custom fire place mantel. Now we can build that for you and keep working on being a one stop shop for all your needs. Thank you
