Straw Logs are a solid fuel made from 100% British Biomass. These environmentally friendly, farm grown, sustainable heat logs offer an annually renewable alternative to coal, charcoal or wood as a solid fuel.

Make the best choice:
Straw Logs are a sustainable solid fuel grown as a by-product of UK Food Production. Protect the environment by using this renewable green fuel.
• Straw Logs are a solid fuel recommended for open fires, wood burners, stoves, fire pits, chimeneas and camp fires.
• They are easily lit with fire lighter and paper.
• Ready to use- no need to be seasoned before use.
• The low moisture content maximises the heat produced on burning.
• The Nutrient rich ash is an ideal fertiliser for the garden thus
reducing waste, promoting plant growth and therefore carbon dioxide
• Ready to use, so do not need to be seasoned.
can be burnt in combination with other fuels, or alone.
Clean alternative to coal and wood.
• The straw is a by-product from crops of wheat, oil seed rape and peas grown for food.
• All packaging is recyclable.
• No trees are felled to create this botanical fuel.
• No land meant for food production is sacrificed to provide this bio-fuel.
• The growing crops capture the energy from the sun which is released as heat from the straw logs when burnt.
• The CO2 released on burning the straw logs is equal to the CO2 released if the straw decomposes in the field.
• The equivalent amount of CO2 is reabsorbed by the next crop grown on our farm.
• Protect the environment by using this renewable, green and sustainable fuel.
Wheat grown for the UK bread industry, peas for processing and Oilseed rape
for locally cold pressed rape seed oil ‘Oil of Wight’ all leave a straw
by-product following harvest of the grain or seed.
The carbon cycle for straw logs is the shortest of all available fuels. The
carbon is recycled within one year compared to 5 to 150 years for wood or the
500 million year old carbon released from Fossil Fuels. Straw Logs therefore do
not increase the amount of ancient trapped carbon being released to the
atmosphere to contribute to greenhouse gases.

Why am I confident that you must try these logs as fire pit logs or instead of wood for wood burning stove?
1. It is far easier- due to its shape. It is so easy to hold and also to store. So easy to pile as it arrived packed tidy. It looks great while stored as all logs are same size. It is ready to use and as it is much drier than wood it is easier to light a fire.
2. Is it better quality, in several ways: it creates cleaner smoke with less water vapour, as it only contains half of the humidity compare with seasoned wood logs. It means very important things for you:
• Less dirt in the chimney- less risk of chimney fire and less cleaning needed.
• Enjoy more heat, as it contains less water.
• Less smoke- more environmentally friendly
3. You can use a material that is far more renewable and easy to produce at fairly low cost.
4. In addition the price is friendly too. We offer promotion prices for large orders.

produce this fuel?
Arable land is used to grow the straw for the straw logs, but the straw is a
by-product from the food crops, which are the primary crop. Peas, oil seed rape
and wheat are produced from the same land which provides the straw.
