Meeting so many people at the shows has been fascinating. We learn a huge amount about what people are looking for in their woodfuel and their horse bedding and there's a lot of keen interest in the wood briquettes and pellets. The weather has been challenging: at Dumfries Show everything was in full swing when a massive thunderstorm struck and literally wiped the show out. Then last weekend, at Galloway Country Fair, the underfoot conditions were more than soggy, necessitating a lot of towing by tractors to get exhibitors on and off their pitches, but on Saturday afternoon the hot sun really brought out the crowds.
There are more products on our shelves that you might also like to try out, so do call by if you can. We do trial packs, as every stove and fire grate is different and usually some experimenting will produce a mixture of different types of wood briquettes to make the perfect burn for you. We can store your bulk-bought fuel for you in our Dumfries depot, so that you can take advantage of the cheaper prices the co-op obtains, pick up what you need whenever you're passing and not have to give up lots of space to log storage. So if you're trying to cut your heating costs and want a convenient, eco-friendly product as well, we look forward to meeting you down at Heathhall!
