Founders and owners of Stumpy’s Hatchet House, Stuart and Kelly chat about their business and how they created a fun, exciting adventure for people to enjoy.
a little about the josbergers:
Stuart and Kelly Josberger, along with their friends Mark and Trish Oliphant had a casual backyard barbecue one night after a sail on the Barnegat Bay. While the girls were preparing dinner, the boys were out back building a fire in the chiminea. Chopping wood for the fire, led to the creation of an impromptu game of throwing the axe to a makeshift bullseye on some log rounds from a tree that came down during Superstorm Sandy.
The game evolved to a more sophisticated target of 2 x 6′ timbers on an tripod stand in the backyard. Soon, the Josbergers and the Oliphants realized this game had potential and decided to take it indoors, recreating the fun and bonding over food, drinks, and hatchet throwing competition.
