  • Firewood Sales

We are members of the Firewood Association, which ensures it’s members only be supplied with wood harvested from sustainable, ethical sources, and is dry, seasoned wood. We sell our wood by weight, which we believe is the fairest method  as it is exact, with no guesswork involved.

Whilst we endeavor to have wood available all year round, we do suggest that customers stock up as early as possible in the season (even summer) to achieve maximum seasoning, and avoid disappointment should supply run short in the depths of winter.

Kindling and briquettes are also available.

  • Pig Manure

Based in Corowa, NSW we truck out of the Rivalea Piggery between 8-10,000 tonnes of pig manure each year to our site. We then age it, screen to a friable consistency then send it all over the Eastern seaboard, and into NSW.

Whilst the pig manure is primarily used as an organic fertilizer substitute for agriculture, but is equally useful for home gardener. We can supply any amount from a bag, trailer load, to bulk truckloads.
