About Us

We are Simon Steer & Alexander Yates owners of Your Local Logs and our sister company Inside Out Buildings

We own and manage ancient woodlands on The Blackdown Hills
Located on the Devon and Somerset border. In 2007, as part of a regeneration project of these woodlands, left untouched for many years, we began licensed felling of Ash, Oak, Beech and Hazel hardwood trees.  We produced as a by product of the felling of the hardwood trees, vast quantities of hardwood logs for wood fuel which we used for ourselves, and offered for sale locally. The response to the selling of these logs was staggering, quality firewood at an affordable price seemed to be in short supply.

We both use seasoned firewood to fuel our woodburners and open fires and Rayburn, and know the importance of using dry logs as a fuel source, and decided to offer our firewood logs for sale throughout the local area, believing that we can offer a quality log product at an affordable price.

Sourced locally

Because of demand, we have sourced locally felled and certified wood, meaning all our wood can be traced to where it has been felled, and knowing it has come from managed forests or woodlands, ensuring long term firewood supplies and protecting the environment from un licensed felling.

We have two yards where we store our wood, one yard in Somerset and one in Devon. The wood is air dried in lengths, and then cut to size to produced seasoned logs.

Our belief

Our counties have enough native trees to satisfy the domestic demand for quality seasoned hardwood and softwood logs, and that by buying your firewood from local sources not only supports the local businesses of forestry, felling, transportation to name a few, but also supports the need for a carbon neutral fuel.

Your Local Logs was founded on the principles of supplying seasoned logs to the local community at a realistic price, creating local employment & supporting local businesses, please help your local fuel producer by sourcing your logs locally.

 

My Kid Has a Food Allergy

While most guests at a cheap nfl jerseys family wedding last weekend were shmoozing with each other, Anne Seymour made her way to the kitchen. The Maryland mother of three has a child with severe food allergies, so she and her husband went to find out what was in what.

“What’s the big deal?” an aunt asked about their food patrol efforts. “The big deal,” she replied, “is that we end up at the hospital” should eggs or tree nuts wind wholesale nfl jerseys up on or near their daughter’s plate.

When it comes to educating and convincing others about the imperatives that accompany food allergies, “it is constantly an uphill battle,” Seymour says.

If it seems like suddenly food allergies are everywhere, that’s because they are. About 1 in 13 children has food allergies, according to FARE, which notes recent data showing that food allergies among kids have jumped by 50 percent since the late 1990s.

What’s going on? No one really knows the specifics beyond a presumed interaction between genetics and the environment. (Adults, too, are affected by food allergies, but the data is insufficient, Sicherer says). While quality of life concerns and, in some cases, bullying can challenge children with food allergies, they can enjoy as full a life as their allergy free peers. But that requires entire communities to learn the ins and outs of food allergies. And there’s a steep learning curve.

As Sicherer explains, most social activities surround food. Whether it’s a birthday or holiday party, he says, “there’s always food around. There’s always a constant concern around that.”

Michael Pistiner was working as a pediatric allergist when his son developed food allergies. And yet, despite his expertise in allergy management, it took about two months for him and his wife to become comfortable with their new routine.

Pistiner, who works at Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates and calls himself a food allergy educator, suggests working with your child’s school to spread awareness. “The school is really a hub, and it’s so central to many of our lives,” he says, explaining that outreach at school can penetrate the entire network of students and parents. .

Last year, the National School Boards Association issued allergy guidelines: Safe at School wholesale nfl jerseys and Ready to Learn: A Comprehensive Policy Guide for Protecting Students With Life Threatening Food wholesale cheap nfl jerseys Allergies. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is also expected to release national school guidelines for food allergies.

But here are some basics. Allergic reactions can range from throat itch to throat closing, hives and vomiting. So you should talk with a doctor if you think your child may have a food allergy. Remember, too, that “reactions are unpredictable,” writes John Lehr, CEO of Food Allergy Research Education, in an email. “You can have a history of mild reactions, and then suddenly experience anaphylaxis without warning.” For that reason, anyone with a food allergy should carry two auto injectors of epinephrine, which treats anaphylaxis, a severe allergic reaction.Articles Connexes:
