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…

Bags of firewood
Stage 1: Timber stock
We hold over 3000 Tons of Quality Hardwood in stock on our farm.
Stage 2: Processing
Seasoned hardwood is loaded into an infeed conveyer.
Stage 3: Timber cutting
The log cutting machine processes the timber into regular lengths.
Stage 4: Log splitting
Wood is then split into billets (timber chunks) of predefined sizes.
Stage 5: Seasoned timber storage
The wooden billets are stored to continue drying out, to achieve the optimum moisture content for burning.
Stage 6: Cutting into logs
Billets are then fed into the log cutting machine and cut into logs.
Stage 7: Hardwood logs for sale
Seasoned logs are stored in our barns ready for despatch. For smaller orders, log bags and kindling nets are made up ready for collection.

For bulk delivery, logs are loaded onto one of our purpose built trucks… ready to deliver to your door.
More information about our firewood logs
Our standard log length is approx 10.5” (26cm) although we can supply in any size, e.g. 8” logs for small stoves or 14” for larger log burners.
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.
