Lumpwood Charcoal and Finings sold out for 2019. Artists charcoal and charcloth as normal through the webshop.
2018 was an exciting year and it got even more exciting with the addition of a charcoal kiln!
This is a new venture with Suffolk Wildlife Trust at Bradfield Woods. To add to the already wonderful selection of coppice products that they do (pea sticks, fire wood, hazel for hurdles etc.) we will be using up the previous year's wood and making small batches of charcoal.
Charcoal is made from 100% native hardwood species - typically birch, alder and hazel but other species as well. Hardwood charcoal has a high carbon content and is easy to light (you can light these lumps with a lighter and they burn away to nothing!). It has no additives and has come from a sustainable source.
All the timber used in the production of this charcoal is a by product of essential conservation work to preserve the ancient woodlands of Bradfield Woods.
First two burns of the year completed!
