Our Story

Great Lakes Farmhouse was started out of love for family and the great American tradition.

FATHER & SON

A heritage of craftsmanship.

Things made by hand are rare in our world. They represent a love of craftsmanship inspired by a tradition of artistry handed down over generations. Hello! I'm David Zupec, owner and craftsman. I've always had a passion for woodworking since I was a kid. I love the process of designing, milling and sculpting raw wood into a beautiful piece of furniture for families and friends to gather around.

My dad, a retired engineer and master craftsman has been my inspiration and biggest supporter along the way. He's built many beautiful pieces of furniture for my mom and their homes throughout the years. Today we both work together, each with a different skill set that complements each other.

ABOUT

Modern Farmhouse. Rustic charm.

Inspired by the modern yet rustic farmhouse style look, in 2015 my dad and I built a farmhouse table along with a few other pieces of furniture for my home. Shortly thereafter family and friends were requesting farmhouse tables and the demand continued to increase through word-of-mouth. Then in early 2018 I pulled my dad out of retirement (mom was happy) and I decided to officially launch Great Lakes Farmhouse.

What started as a modest custom table operation in our shop in Hartland, Michigan and sold locally, grew into a collection of dining pieces ordered directly through our website and delivered to homes across America.

We value faith, family, and tradition and hope to inspire the same through our farmhouse tables.

MISSION

Handmade farmhouse tables. Redefined.

We build heirloom quality, custom farmhouse tables the old school way—handcrafted. Using the finest premium hardwoods along with the best finishes and craftsmanship, our small family owned operation enables us to provide nothing less than exceptional craftsmanship, value, and service throughout our business.

CRAFTSMANSHIP

Enduring quality. Timeless style.

We make every one of our custom farmhouse tables with a focus on quality and attention to detail. All are handmade with American hardwoods that contain saw marks, knots, and other beautiful imperfections. This is what gives our pieces their beautiful, rustic character.

Every cut, every detail represents a passion and a love to create something one of a kind. Using the highest quality hardwoods along with the best finishes and craftsmanship, our farmhouse tables get more beautiful with age and use.

TRADITION

Memories are made around the table.

God and family has always been the most important in our home growing up. Evenings were spent around the dining table eating and coming together as a family to share, to learn, to grow, and give thanks. 

That is why we believe our custom farmhouse tables are more than just a piece of furniture, it's the heart of the home. From breakfast together to dinner parties to hosting holiday gatherings, so many favorite moments happen at the table. Gather around in rustic farmhouse style and create the memories that will last a lifetime.

We hope Great Lakes Farmhouse can be part of your family's story. Thank you for your support and God bless.

PRICING

Premium quality without the premium price.

It is important for us to deliver exceptional value at both product and price. We believe our heirloom quality, hardwood farmhouse tables don’t have to come at a premium marked-up price. By not having a showroom and primarily selling directly to our customers online, we avoid much of the costly overhead.
