Yes, we are all retail. You can stop in anytime during our business hours.
No, we do not deliver face cords. Our minimum for delivery is a full bush cord.
Face cords can be picked up during our business hours, no need to call ahead. A face cord fits in the back of a pick-up truck, even short boxes if stacked in tight.
First try the office door. We have minimal workers which means generally nobody is in the office as we are out working, so look for someone driving a loader tractor who will be able to help you. If there is nobody in the office, please do not call as you would be calling the phone in the office achieving nothing.
Our hours are the following
Monday - Friday: 8am - 5pm
Holiday Hours and other special hours are located on our google page
You can come anytime during our business hours. Please remember to leave yourself enough time before closing so you have time to load the wood. We also take lunch 12-1 and it would be greatly appreciated if you could avoid coming during that time.
Our minimum for delivery is a full bush cord, which stacked up is 4'x4'x8' which is the legal measurement which everything is based on. Anything smaller than a bush cord is pick-up only. Down from a bush cord is a face cord or 1/3 of a bush cord, stacked up is 4'x8'x16", and that fits in the back of a pickup truck. Down from there we have 1/4 face cords which we call trunk loads which fit in practically every vehicles trunk, stacked up is 4'x2'x16". Down from there we have the bags of firewood which has a whole seperate page of information found here
It all depends on your comfort level and how much you care about your vehicle. For reference, the following is what comfortably fits in the vehicle size.
These are not rules, just a general guide to go off of. Like stated before it is all about your comfort level, some people are uncomfortable with putting 2 trunk loads in an suv, and some show up with a small car and put an entire face cord in (not that we would recommend it as it is very dangerous to drive like that)

Green wood is fresh cut wood that still needs to be dried before burning. Dry wood is wood that has already been dried and is ready to burn right away. Customers who order green wood save money by drying the wood themselves. They buy in the spring and stack the wood up leaving it to dry for the summer and then burn the following winter. Avoid using the word "seasoned" as this wording can be deceiving, since the meaning of it is that the wood has seen all four seasons, but that doesn't necessarily mean the wood is dry. When ordering wood from anywhere always ensure you know whether the wood you are buying is green or dry. If you receive a quote that is drastically cheaper, make sure you ask all the right questions.
