Lyal demonstrates how to use the firewood bundler.

In 1992, while looking for 5-10 acres to live and raise a horse or two, Sandy and Lyal Purinton stumbled across 41 acres of severely cut over forest with a run-down farm house. Reminding Sandy of the house she grew up in, the purchase of the property was inevitable. The first few years were spent reforesting the property and making the house livable. From its start at 41 acres, the farm has grown over the years to now encompass 120 acres. With the help of their sons, Justin and Collin, the farm is managed with a desire to create a long term sustainable forest that will provide great wildlife habitat and an heirloom for their grandchildren. The firewood that we sell through OWC is from trees that we have thinned from our original plantings in the early 1990s. While the removal of the wood enables the remaining trees and understory to grow healthier, we hope it also warms your home.
