|Old West Iron is a small family owned business operated by Jon and Lisa (me) Westerlund. Fulfilling our dreams
we uprooted from North San Diego County to relocate our family business to a small parcel in Felt, Idaho called
Buffalo Bluff Ranch, which was an original homestead. According to local history the bluff on the southwest side of
the property was used as a buffalo jump 200 years ago, hence the name Buffalo Bluff Ranch. Jon and I have been
involved with iron for well over a decade, from large on-site structural iron erections to designing and
manufacturing iron on large commercial projects such as, “The Grand Hotel & Spa at Del Mar” in Southern
California. After enjoying the rush of living the fast-paced business life with a rapidly growing large company and
numerous employees, we both decided to down-scaled and focus more on unique hard-to-find hardware items that
we could sell across the internet. After many years running a blacksmith shop, we recognized the need for the more
simple rustic hardware to thoroughly complete an authentic look in projects. By fulfilling our customers needs for
custom speciality hardware we created a portal to affordable hand-crafted iron products that bring yesterday's style
into today's marketplace. Once my daughter moved to Idaho and reunited with our company, Keira and I took our
authentic 17th Century wrought iron replications to a whole new level with our extensive research in the history
and designs in iron. We went to considerable lengths to reproduce iron hardware to appear as it did hundreds of
Now for our latest transition, trying to keep up with googles latest rules we are building a new google compliant web
page, in that process, we have changed our name from Teton Iron to Old West Iron. Although, we have months to
finish the Old West Iron's web site, so please be patient during this transition, in the long run it will be a more
informative and advanced website. Unfortunately during this transition, my son's have enlisted in the Army, as we
are very sad to see them go we are very happy to see them move into their future.
