A Note From Keith
I made my first beaver blanket for our Adirondack “camp
room” in the mid 1980’s. Many of my friends and business
associates who visited our home saw the blanket and wanted
me to make one either for their own personal use or for a
gift. I was encouraged by their tremendous interest and
felt that my beaver blankets should be shared
with others on a broader scale.
I have been an avid outdoorsman and conservationist since
the early 1980’s. My first encounter with wild furs was as a Boy
Scout. My Eagle Scout leader showed us at a young age the need
for conservation and furbearer management. The “seeds were
planted," and I’ve been enthusiastic about wildlife ever since.
I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1972 from Kent State
University where I took all the wildlife management and forestry related
courses available. I have been a National Conservation
Director, as well as a regional chairman of Ohioans for Wildlife
Conservation and Furbearers Unlimited.
I operate a residential construction/decorating company
northeastern Ohio area. The meticulous execution of every detail
in this business is extended into all facets of Adirondack Beaver
Blankets. When it comes to quality, excellence is the yardstick by which we
measure all of our products.
My son Keith Raymond (Ray) spends as much of his free time as
he can helping me with the beaver blanket business. Ray has had
a passion for wildlife and furs since he was old enough to spend
a day with me in the woods. When not involved with beaver
blankets, he works at our construction/decorating business.
Thank you for your interest in Adirondack Beaver Blankets®.
A great amount of care is taken during the production of our
blankets and other products. From selecting the skins, to
inspecting the quality of the final product, each purchase is
personally looked at to ensure that the craftsmanship is consistent
with the standard that I expect from all those who work with me.
I look forward to being of service to you.
