Our story begins some 30 years ago with our founder, Doug Smith. Doug grew up not too far from Barky Beaver’s current headquarters in Clay County, where his dad owned a sawmill. By the time Doug was 11, he was learning the ropes from his dad.


After high school, Doug pursued a degree—and career—in engineering, but he couldn’t shake his experiences at the sawmill.

In 1970, Doug returned to his roots and began milling wood in the small town of Moss, where the mill sits today.


Although Doug passed away in 2011, his daughter April and her husband Nick Patterson have continued Doug’s mission to provide high quality mulch, soil and stone to wholesalers and retailers throughout the South Central and lower Midwest regions of the U.S.

Our Story


A way of life

Long before going green became a common buzzword, our founder, the late Doug Smith, believed that making a living from wood products meant using every possible part of the log — and having practices in place to renew those raw materials.


For Barky Beaver, going green
isn’t a passing trend. It’s a way of life.


Our business is based on sustainable and environmentally friendly business practices. Together with our sister companies, we’re directly or indirectly involved in virtually every aspect of the logging and sawmill business.


We remain committed to sustainability when creating all our Barky Beaver family of products. Because
it’s not just good business practice, it’s proper stewardship. And it’s the right thing to do.


We pride ourselves on producing the highest quality products available, using natural ingredients that honor our earth and environment
