Located in Oroville, Feather River Industries is a full-service wood shop serving California wholesale food growers and vineyards that rely on our custom wood presentation boxes for in-store or catalog product presentation. Our master carpenter staff provides guidance in this vocational training program to individuals interested in wood finishing. Raw materials are often sourced from recycled wood that is then re-planed and fashioned into an array of products. Many of our projects start at Feather River Industries and then progress through Bear Mountain Productions or Feather River Opportunity Center for kitting and shrink-wrapping before being shipped back to the customer. Feather River Industries is currently developing a secondary line of products that will be marketed to consumers, including some children’s furniture and learning tools for pre-schools.
