Oak Charcoal in Stock

Oak Charcoal in Stock

Having waited for the felling sites to open up, we couldnt wait any longer so have managed to acquire a load of  English Oak timber for our Charcoal kiln. 

Again made on site at our Yard in Stramshall, This is really great lumpwood charcoal giving a mildly oak smoke flavour, large lumps and really long lasting.  Try this new burn for £20 a large bag.  Limited quantity .  Created for a BBQ forum network who are using this in their ceramic Egg BBQs and Komondo Joe BBQs, where it works perfectly, giving great heat output and a slight smoke flavour..

We shall soon be doing Ash, Beech and Oak burns to give different flavours to your cooking.

Price increases from Feb 2020

Price increases from Feb 2020

Having never raised our prices for the last 5 years we are finding that due to increased timber prices from January 2020, we are having to increase our retail prices, we have absorbed the previous years price rises rather than pass on to our customers but as these costs have risen so much we are in the unfortunate position that we must pass on some of this cost.  The cost of raw material timber; even though we source from local estates and the forestry commission is costing more due to increase in power stations burning biomass which is softwood and some hardwoods woodchip, this has sky rocketed the price of timber into firewood processors such as myself.  Indeed whilst the hardwood prices have marginally increased the softwood costs have doubled overnight to myself and so unfortunately there is no such thing as "cheap" wood anymore.

JCB Golf Course development chooses Yeomans Forestry to complete its forestry work

JCB Golf Course development chooses Yeomans Forestry to complete its forestry work

JCB the world famous excavator company based at Rocester, has choosen Yeomans Forestry to complete its forestry work for the new prestigious golf course development at Rocester ,Staffordshire.  Working with a very tight deadline of just 4 weeks to the 6th of March, Yeomans Forestry completed felling the two Ash woodlands and chipping all brash, leaving the site ready for the next stage.  Rohan Yeomans says " Its been a fantastic opportunity for us having worked for JCB for over 10 years as Lord Bamfords forestry contractors, they asked us to tender for the work against another two companies, a competitive bid was put in , but also the company knows our standard of work and I think this really helped win the bid, I am really pleased how the job went even though we had a tight deadline and not helped by poor weather"

With over 800 tonnes of Ash hardwood coming off the site , this timber will be fed into our firewood business supplying local customers with a premium product, produced locally and transported back to our yard to resale next winter.

Our Premium Hardwood is the fuel of choice for Yeomans Customers Jan.2015

Our Premium Hardwood is the fuel of choice for Yeomans Customers Jan.2015

Increased sales this month and with new customers buying from Yeomans Firewood everyday, the fuel of choice continues to be our Premium Hardwood, we have a fantastic mix of Ash and Beech with some sycamore in the mix.  

Beating our competitors who offer poor quality green Birch, which although a good firewood if dry still burns way too quickly, our mix however ensures great value for money and with our loads meeting trading standards expectations by both being seasoned and measured you can be rest assured you are buying from a bona fide merchant.

We beat the competitors who offer what the customer thinks is more volume - beware a transit tipper can only carry 2 cubic metres as this will weigh about 1.5 Tonnes, so if you see a transit load advertised carrying more dont be fooled you are probably buying inferior overpriced rubbish, we measure each and every load in cubic metre measuring sacks, these are shaken to ensure they are really full, and also all our timber is dried for 12 months from felling to selling.

We have guaranteed our stocks for next year with our felling team already felling ash and sycamore from two local woodlands, one from a local estate and another from a Staffordshire Wildlife Trust managed site.  As we fell our own timber you can be guaranteed to get the best wood around!

We are Staffordshire Wildlife trusts contractor in its Stoke woods.
