About Us

Holderness Logs is a subsidiary of I.M. Hodgson & Son Ltd, run by the Hodgson family based at Hall Farm, Halsham, HU12 0BT and close to the city of Hull. Holderness Logs was established by neighbouring farmer Steve Biglin in 2015. Steve built Holderness Logs to become the premier hardwood logs producer in the region, building a reputation for the finest quality firewood and unbeatable customer service. In 2019 Steve decided he would like to pursue other interests and, impressed by the reputation Holderness Logs had gained in 4 years, the Hodgson family offered to buy the business.

Like Steve, the Hodgson family have diversified their farming enterprises over recent years. Not only do they grow a range of crops and keep livestock but have also established the Great Newsome Brewery, Little Otchan Shepherds Hut and generate solar energy. The Hodgsons are dedicated to continuing Holderness Logs values of high-quality logs and exceptional customer service.

About Our Logs

Holderness Logs purchases large lorry loads of hardwood logs which are delivered to the farm. Initially, only sustainable hardwood timber has been purchased to produce a premium product. It is Holderness logs intention to continue supplying hardwood logs, however, this will depend on the availability, as sustainable softwood is more readily available.

Holderness Logs has always prided itself in supplying sustainably sourced UK timber to produce a high quality firewood log. In May 2021 however the new “Air Quality (Domestic Solid Fuel Standards) (England) Regulations 2020” came into force which regulates the burning of firewood in domestic homes. Mainly this new regulation aims to prevents the sale of wet firewood which is a significant contributor to air pollution. No firewood can now be sold in quantities under 2 cubic metres without it being drier than 20% moisture.

Here at Holderness Logs all of our seasoned logs are below 20% moisture and our kiln dried logs are below 10% moisture. All our logs are the best quality and ready to burn.

Our kiln dried logs are under Woodsure Accreditation scheme so that you can be confident that the firewood logs you buy from us are dry, sustainably sourced and ready to burn.
