Although a Nashville staple for Music City visitors today, Littlebranch Farm began in Hamilton, Georgia in 2000 by Kelly and Cathy Maxwell. In a small shop on 16 acres at the foot of Ross Mountain, on the ‘Little Branch’ creek. Kelly started with several unique garden benches and wood slab tables for a wedding reception for his oldest daughter; friends and family commented on Kelly’s talent and encouraged him to expand his craft. From that special wedding reception, and the encouragement from friends and family, Kelly began selling natural wood furniture at craft shows and by 2003 had expanded to log home shows and internet marketing.
In 2008, Cathy, a lifelong nurse, began a Ph.D. program that eventually resulted in employment as nursing faculty in Nashville, necessitating the need to move our company. In June 2014, we took a major step by opening the Littlebranch showroom and studio at 901 2nd Ave South in Nashville Tennessee.
Kelly is self-taught, which speaks to his remarkable gift and artistic vision to produce unique and ‘one-of-a-kind’ pieces. Since its inception, Kelly Maxwell and Littlebranch Farm has been published in many local publications and four major log home magazines, including Log Home Design Ideas (July 2003), Log Home Living (March 2009), Country Best Log Homes (January 2010), Nashville Arts (May 2015), Log Home Living (August 2015), and Nashville Lifestyle (August 2016). Kelly was also a guest on The Highland Woodworker.
Known for the quality, originality, and captivating beauty of our work, Littlebranch Farm specializes in wood slab furniture, custom rustic beds, and mixed species of live edge wood furniture. Although we are best known for our rustic tables, rustic vanities, live edge dining tables and rustic mantels.
Our greatest satisfaction is a happy customer. We do not produce items in volume or provide a printed catalog but you are in our online catalog.
