Mouse Adventures, Gardens, and Building.


The Mouse Works is more than a Business, it is a lifestyle.  It developed out of a passion for the outdoors and that has remained the central pillar of the business. Keeping the business small allows me the flexibility to garden and take extended sojourns in the mountains. link
We also raise honey bees, mushrooms, veggies, fruits and berries when not making fleece hats
