Knot Farm is a professional wood mill sole proprietor operation by Jim MacDonald, with the support and permission of his wife Jennifer.

Knot Farm has a selected blend of old and new equipment to provide sawmilling and lumber processing services. At the heart of the operation is a TimberKing 2000 hydraulic band saw mill, with all kinds of hydraulic functions. There are 2 basic kinds of sawmills, Circular mills that are usually stationary with thick spinning blades that chew through logs and band saw mills that slice through logs. The TimberKing 2000 can lift logs off the ground onto the saw bed and rotate, clamp it and with the computer controls cut every board off the log the same thickness. This high tech hydraulic sawmill machine was purchased produce framing and siding lumber to build the buildings at Knot Farm. You can learn more about the mill and what it can produce throughout our website.

Knot Farm sawmill service can come to you with our mill, or you can bring the logs to us, and we will make some boards together! Knot Farms encourages customer participation producing lumber from their Logs. Milling rates will reflect that help, or Knot.

Knot Farms does have a few local contractors that can carry the logs from your site to ours, should you choose to not have the “Milling Experience” at the logs. If you need help in gathering the logs and building a log landing to mill from, Knot Farm can help with that also.

The mill is located in Nanjemoy, along the Potomac River, in Charles County Maryland. The farm is about 34 miles south of Route 495 at the Woodrow Wilson Bridge. From the beltway, use Route 210 South and then 224. There is a map service and distance calculator on another page of this site. Please call, write or text before a visit so someone will be around and available when you visit.
