Fieldstone Food Slab
Each Food Slab is made from hand-gathered fieldstone at small farms throughout the country. This food-safe dish is then crafted by hand-sawing and hand-polishing the rock with diamond tools in American Stonecraft’s Lowell, MA studio. Its farm-provenance is permanently labeled on the underside and clear silicon feet have been added to protect tabletops. Use this dish to serve food, as a challah board, chill it in the freezer, or use it as a resting place for hot dishes. You will be able to find your farm’s page on the American Stonecraft website to discover its story and view photos of the gathering visit. Stamped on the underside.
Some of the slabs are made from stone that is much more rare than the stone typically cut for food slabs, with lots of additional color and movement. They are marked with a red gem on the label and cost slightly more than the typical slab in the same size.

Meet the Artist: American Stonecraft
American Stonecraft’s artwork makes beautiful irony of New England’s infamously rocky farmland. The studio’s collection of live-edge tableware celebrates the small working farms where it hand-gathers stones by labeling the origins of each product made. The program showcases this farm-gathered produce and helps farmers preserve open space. What was once an obstacle to farming is now a collectible artifact of America’s rich history, westward migration, and rugged farmers.Learn More
