coppice products

Conservation is paramount. All our products are bi products of our work to preserve and enhance the woodland ecology.

pimps

 

A "Pimp" is a traditional handmade product that was in great demand in the past. It contains 25 individual bundles of kindling, each tightly bound with tarred string. Each bundle can start up to 2-3 fires, depending on the fuel and kindling you use.

 

Pimp making is a traditional craft, which we continue to keep alive in this Herefordshire woodland using hand tools and jigs based on centuries old designs.

 

The birch is cut in the winter and seasoned for a year before being used. It is full of natural oils, which makes it easy to light whilst giving out a lovely scent.
