Growing up around the mill was a unique experience, but Jennifer Durant joined the team officially in 1993. With over 25 years experience and a complete working knowledge of the entire operation, Jen handles all bookkeeping, personnel, purchasing, logistics and most of the sales.
When Jon and Jennifer say they grew up in the business, they mean it. From helping their parents with firewood as toddlers, to picking up edgings and odd jobs during elementary school years & they can't even begin to explain how many grade stakes they've sharpened over the years. The work ethic their parents have and have instilled in them is what has held this organization together so well for so long.
Gurney's operates year-round, six days a week, except for Fourth of July Week and on major holidays. We tend to have a very old school approach, for example we do not accept credit cards & we close for lunch!
This is also a self serve lumberyard, we generally do not have extra staff, so plan on being self sufficient when selecting your lumber. Please ask if you have any questions, we are always happy to make suggestions, give quotes, and even refer you elsewhere if we can not assist you!
