If you are in the real stone veneer world you have been part of a conversation regarding “New England Fieldstone” or “CT Fieldstone” veneer. When people look at a fieldstone product versus a quarried stone they always ask: what’s the difference?
The simple answer is that a fieldstone is harvested from a field while a quarried stone is sourced from a quarry. New England Fieldstone is named because it is harvested from open fields and farms throughout New England. You may see some of it on a road trip in as a wall while others are scattered over acres of empty fields. Unlike a quarried stone, you can’t “dig” or “blast” for more fieldstone. Once the field has been harvested, that stone is gone. Forever.
