Do you know your firewoods?

 

Ash the most sought-after firewood. Rapid burning even when freshly felled. Emits a great amount of heat. Particularly valuable for fire lighting. Splits easily.
Elm makes a pleasant and long-lasting fire when partially seasoned
Hazel well known for its value as firewood. Much sought after
Oak hard to beat for lasting properties and amount of heat produced but difficult to light.
Sycamore considerable heating properties.
Wild Cherry difficult to start but once alight lasts long and gives a fierce heat. Best when old and partially seasoned
Conifers generally inclined to spark with no great heat value. Best in wood burning stoves. Sold as kindling but NOT at Farmer Gow’s – NO SOFTWOODS!

Seasoned hardwood logs - Ash, Beech, Cherry, Hazel, Oak, & Sycamore.  Firewood direct from ancient woodlands in Oxfordshir.   Conservation on your doorstep.

We provide complimentary delivery to Appleton, Eaton and Cumnor.  A small delivery charge of  £5 for deliveries to Botley and Boars Hill.
