Born in 1941, Ken Clouser is the founder of Clouser Farm Enterprises and the second generation to operate Clouser Farm. Ken and son Tim built and developed our first farm sawmill in 1987, and along with Ken’s herd of dairy cows, this provided the family’s income. Since that time, Ken has converted the operation to a bandsaw mill, and has maintained a dealership with Timber Harvester until the end of 2006 when he went on his own and created Lion Country Bandsaws which engineers, develops, and field-tests bandsaws right here in Brush Valley, Pennsylvania. Throughout his life Ken has held several other job positions along with the farm, which include working in a newspaper business, building and land development of Krislund Camp, and managing a health care facility for handicapped residents. This exposure has given Ken a wide range of skills and contacts that have further aided in his successful marketing campaigns.
