PalletPallets are a great way to build almost any project at virtually no cost and with great results.  We have built many of the structures on our farm with pallets – including our chicken coop and compost bin and garden signs!  Throw in our mailbox, canning cabinet, and shelves at the house – and you will see that pallets are the basis of a lot of our creations.  We created this page to highlight those project, along with a few tips of the trade when working with them. Just click on the pictures below to go straight to the individual project or tip.

    My sister and I were trying to figure a way to make extra money to save so we could buy some farm land and I think making things from pallets could be the answer thank you for all your information.

    What about the off gassing and leachate issues? Are you not concerned about what pallets may be lending to your soil?

      We use only non-treated pallets – so no worries at all with that. Jim
