The Brackettes are made from 100% bracken, yes bracken. You know, that fern-like stuff that covers the countryside.
Why bracken? Well, when it turns brown, it is harvested, dried, cut and all mashed together to create Brackettes. The Brackettes actually burn hotter than oak (something to do with having a higher calorific value and lower moisture content). Good huh?
Something else to warm the soul, is that when the bracken is harvested it increases the bio-diversity of the land so bluebells can flourish as can all types of flora and fauna.
And, by burning bracken instead of wood, there is not any beautiful old trees cut down either.
Good news all round wouldn't you say?
