Family Business


The company was founded in 1989, when Ann Clark had the idea to transform her popular pig shape ornament into a cookie cutter. Blending her unique folk art designs and custom hand painted recipes cards, Ann launched her first line and Ann Clark Ltd. was formed.

As the business grew, Ann's children eagerly returned home to Vermont to lend their expertise to the company. Together, The Clark Family transformed the business from a small home business focused on the gift industry to the largest brand and manufacturer of cookie cutters in the United States. Today the company is led by Ann's son Ben who upholds the The Clark Family's standards for good design and quality American-Made products.
