Welcome to the Logbook; a place for us to share our adventures, outdoor knowledge and campfire recipes, along with insights into the way we make our products and the work we do around our woodland studio.
Bilberry, wimberry, whortleberry, blaeberry, Vaccinium myrtillus. Whatever you want to call them, foraging for these tiny flavour bombs is our favourite annual wild food excursion.
