Our unique creations are a union of a love for architecture and a passion for the environment. It occurred to us, that by salvaging materials from old Michigan barns, once noble structures that have become destined for destruction by fire or the wrecker’s claw, a greater statement might be made about the purpose of conservation.
That’s why we formed Heart & Eagle Company.
Our nature products are made from hand-picked, century-old barn siding, re-purposed from barns that vary in age from 140 to 100 years. To date, we have preserved the better part of seven barns, and used their historic pieces to build upwards of 3,000 durable and collectible unique bird houses, bird feeders and bat houses.
Heart and Eagle Company supplies its unique bird houses and products to botanical centers and conservation organizations, in addition to offering them online and at art and garden shows in the Midwest.
Our clients and supporters include San Luis Rey Mission Church (Oceanside, California), Frederik Meijer Gardens, Rob Mies, Director of the Organization for Bat Conservation, and former president Gerald R. Ford.
“You are a terrific artisan with your unique bird houses.”
President Gerald R. Ford
Our unique Baroque Birdhouse is designed to celebrate the musical nature of birds. It also makes a unique gift for music enthusiasts. The design in the gable is the inverted body of a violin. The “F” holes in the front are there for ventilation. Like all of our unique birdhouses, it is created from re-purposed century-old barn wood and then branded with our own custom made forge-irons.
