Use & Care

Our handmade products last a lifetime with proper care.

Product Care

We thank you for your purchase of woodenware product(s) from our small family business. Our unique pieces are individually crafted in small batches. They are unique and may vary slightly in shape and color as well as showing tool marks from the handcrafted process.

With proper care, these objects will last a lifetime and longer and depending on use and personal choice, there are a few simple considerations when caring for your woodenware item.

Most importantly, any wooden object should never go into the dishwasher or microwave. For cleaning, simply wash with mild soap and water and towel dry. If the wood starts to look dry or dull, a quick wipe of a food safe oil or oil/wax blend is all that is needed. Apply a thin coat and allow to absorb for an hour or as long as you’d like then remove excess with s clean, soft towel. The oil prevents food juice and other liquids from being absorbed into the wood as well as keeping the wood looking it’s best. Some great options for food safe oils for refinishing are flax seed oil, pure linseed oil, hemp seed oil, and walnut oil. If your item is used with dry goods or simply to hold fruit or other objects, a simple wipe with s dry rag is enough and will most likely not need any re-oiling unless in a very dry environment.

Wooden bowls and cups can be used with both hot and cold liquids, but care must be taken when using hot liquids. To keep it simple, if the liquid is too hot to sip, it is too hot for the bowl or cup. Your woodenware item will develop a patina over time and small dings, scratches or worn areas tend to add to the character of the piece over time. Careful handling can avoid these if so desired.


At Farm & Hand, we stand behind our work and will replace an object in kind within the first 6 months if there are any issues due to wood abnormalities or workmanship. If you are unhappy with your product for any reason within the first 30 days, a full refund will be issued. If a bowl or cup splits due to improper care or use no refunds or exchanges will be issued.
