Charcoal burning is a traditional Somerset country craft, which has recently been revived by the National Trust on the Quantocks. The charcoal produced is from timber sourced from the National Trust's own sustainably managed woodlands. This timber the result of coppicing undertaken to allow for vigorous regrowth and improve habitats for Dormice and other wildlife. Somerset charcoal is a high-quality, eco-friendly, alternative to supermarket charcoal, which is generally produced in the far east using wood from mangrove swamps and rainforest. So the next time you plan a barbecue, why not buy some Somerset charcoal direct from the producers at Fyne Court.
