We feel extremely passionate about traditional cooking techniques and doing our bit for the environment. Here are just a few details on what we do to stay green;
Firewood is a renewable resource.
"As they grow, trees remove carbon from the atmosphere. That carbon is released into the atmosphere when we burn a log. But trees are a renewable resource. The trees growing to replace the tree we burned will reclaim the carbon from the air.
Besides, we can’t avoid the carbon being released into the atmosphere. Even if the tree is left to grow old, die and rot in the forest, the carbon in it will be released as it decomposes. Burning in a fireplace is a rapid form of oxidation. Rotting on a forest floor is also oxidation, just slower. Because oil and gas are used to harvest the wood, the carbon footprint isn’t entirely neutral, but it’s pretty small. Burning properly dried wood also minimizes the particulate output from a fire."
Our trees are felled as a result of arboricultural practices (surgeons remove dead/dying/dangerous trees) therefore this wood is considered a waste product. We then leave the wood to season naturally until dry and ready to be used in our cooking techniques.
