Founded by W.T. Fary and his brothers, W.T. Fary Bros. has been in business for over 100 years. We are located in Gloucester County, Virginia, at 8843 Fary's Mill Road near Ark.

W.T. Fary Bros. is a full-service lumber yard specializing in high-quality lumber, molding, doors, and windows. We pride ourselves in providing superior quality building materials and outstanding service.

Our target market is the Middle Peninsula, Peninsula, and Northern Neck areas, but we also supply jobs in the general eastern Virginia area as well. Our customer base is 75% contractor and 25% homeowner.

For more than 100 years, W.T. Fary Bros. has been dedicated to dealing fairly and respectfully with all of our customers. It is our view that good business practices are not an afterthought, but the only way to conduct business. This conscientious approach has supported long-term relationships with our employees, our customers, and our vendors.

We believe that a concentration on quality materials, great service, sound advice, and a fair price will guide us through the next 100 years into a bright future. Our heritage was built on these principles and our fate as a business will depend on the same.

Even in today's competitive market we remain closed on Sunday. Our employees appreciate being part of a company that allows them time to rest, worship and/or spend time with their families. Additionally, we celebrate New Years, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, and Christmas.

Our History
