Welcome to The Birch Country Store! We are so glad you found us!
We are a small, family-owned business in northeastern Wisconsin.
I was born in Oslo, Norway, but grew up in several countries. (My parents were missionaries.) After having graduated from an American high school in Latin America, I came to the U.S.A. in 1996 to study. I met my wife in college -- and never left! Last fall, my brother in Norway contacted me about selling Tova slippers in the U.S.A. After learning all about the company and meeting the owners, I am proud to offer a small part of my Norwegian heritage in my new homeland.
In contrast to Anders, I grew up in the same town in which I was born-- Sturgeon Bay, in beautiful Door County, Wisconsin. As a small girl, I learned to knit from my mother. I love to knit mittens, gloves, and sweaters for my family. Years ago, Anders gave me a beautiful spinning wheel for Christmas-- so now I often spin my own wool for knitting projects. I'm excited to be a part of our small, family-owned adventure!
