Our Story

The Mill's Story

In 1980 Lester River Sawmill opened under the name Biron Timber Products, near the Lester River, Northeast of Duluth, MN.

Nearly 40 years later, Lester River Sawmill supplies, among other local attractions: COGGS, City of Duluth, Sara's Table, Sir Benedict's Tavern on the Lake, Red Herring Lounge, Duluth Pack, Duluth Public Schools, and countless other small businesses and contractors, private homes, barns and cabins.

Michael (Mike) Biron

In 1980 at the age of 26, after 8 years of logging the far North woods of Minnesota's Arrowhead, Mike Biron opened Lester River Sawmill at its original location northeast of Duluth, near the old Lester River Dairy. Since then, Mike has single-handedly been supplying Northern Minnesota and Wisconsin with the kind of high quality building product that he believes in and uses himself.
