It can be stained but remember that anything used on countertops must be rated as food-safe, which many products may not be. You'll also need to seal it well after staining so that food fats and oils do not cause the stain to leach out into the foods placed on them :(

That is why you don't see stained butcher-block counter-tops and cutting boards very often
