The best seasoned fire logs to buy

All of our firewood products are made from locally sourced timber and all processing is carried out at our farm in Hinckley.

When first cut, timber contains about 80% water – that’s why “green” wood doesn’t burn very well.
We season our logs for 3 years to dry them out before processing into firewood logs. Scroll down to see how we do it…

Storing your firewood

We recommend storing your seasoned firewood logs outside.

Ideally you should raise firewood off the ground and leave a gap between your logs and any walls, to enable air to circulate and also cover the top with a waterproof sheet to stop the logs from getting too wet.

If you choose to store in a shed or garage, you don’t need to cover the logs, but if possible, create some ventilation.

You might want to keep a small supply of logs indoors to warm up and allow any residual moisture to evaporate before burning.
