I have ordered gourds from Fernsink more than once. I send them pictures of the shape I need and she has been very good about going through her barn and getting me exactly what I want. The gourds are thick and easy to clean.
Fernsink goes out of the way to accommodate your needs, --whether it results in an immediate sale or not. It's a kind of customer service that's rare these days yet building relationships is the surest way to build your business. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or buy from Fernsink.
I've been ordering gourds from Fernsink Gourds for the past two years. I order canteen gourds small, medium and large. I use them to make Indian rattles. I'm very pleased with the gourds I get, I get them with two days of ordering. There is a selection of other types of gourds. I plan on using other types in the future.

When I first purchased gourds from Fernsink I was new at working with gourds, but Barbara went out of her way for me, took the time, helped me with suggestions on cleaning the gourds, good books to check out and even had printed literature with ideas and helpful suggestions. I've only bought gourds from Fernsink and will continue purchasing their gourds. When you are lucky enough to find such a great source for beautiful gourds, along with friendly help, there is no reason to search any further.
