Cooking--Farming--Thinking

Firewood for Sale--from Sow's Ear to a Silk Purse

Posted by Harland;s Creek Farm :: Tuesday, November 27 :: 11:12am

Harland's Creek Farm is selling firewood this fall and winter. We have oak and hickory. Hurricanes and blustery weather have knocked down trees over the past two years. Unfortunately. the recent ones also destroyed crops. Thus, our efforts to turn a sow's ear (the damage from hurricanes) into a silk purse (sales of wood to warm you from the outside rather than food that nurtures you from within). 

Currently, we are cutting a large oak that came down in Hurricane Matthew two years ago and an oak that fell last winter across the path behind Judy's that runs into the woods. The hickories have only been down for about two months, and we are waiting to cut them. However, if you need a little hickory for making hickory smoked meats and veggies on your grill, we can cut some for you because the greener wood is better for smoking.    

We deliver by the truckload which contains about a half-cord. Below are pictures and prices:
