Seasoned Straight Willow Sticks

It’s wet and windy outside so just the day to cut up a bundle of willow into lengths ready for crafts and the upcoming wreath making season.

The willow is grown on our farm, harvested by hand between November and February/March and then air dried under cover in our barn. We use a small bandsaw to cut up hand selected willow whips into either 60cm or 10cm sticks. The larger sticks are mainly used by schools for various crafts and the smaller ones used for log bundle picks for decorating Christmas wreaths.
