Joe Musialowski set up Wren Country Sticks in 2006.
I had been making sticks as a hobby for a number of years as a member of the now folded Midland Counties Stickmakers club, but when I was made redundant from my job as a Work Shop Manager for a leading Telecoms company I decided to set up my own company making and selling quality sticks.
We sell mainly through this website, and at certain Country Shows and Sheepdog Trials, although as we have now been in business almost 5 years a greater proportion of my work is becoming commissions,received due to recommendations from previous satisfied customers.
We advertise in the International Sheepdog News and in March 2009 one of our sticks, pictured below, was selected to be featured in the March issue of "The Field" magazine.
In 2008 we were commissioned to make a prize crook for the winner of the Angercupen Sheepdog Trials.
The winner was Nina Melin and is pictured below with her prize crook and sheepdog.
Also in 2008 we attended The Land Rover World Sheepdog Championships in Wales where it was really nice to meet many of our overseas customers and put faces to
