Mudgee is a cold place, so firewood collection is a big job that needs to be done on a regular basis. We’ve got plenty of fallen timber all over the property. So up the mountain we go in a couple of utes and a couple of chain saws and of course the whole family. We load the utes up chocka block and sometimes a trailer as well, then back home for the splitting. I’ve also got a big heavy duty logsplitter. We form a big production line to split all the logs and stack them. I love my fires inside and out, so we go through a fair bit each winter.
