Harvesting Fatwood

Fatwood is hand-selected and harvested from naturally felled trees – from storms, lightning, or old age in Honduras. Our Fatwood is not the by-product of commercial logging or clear-cutting.

Kindling Sticks

Not a single live tree is used in the production of Fatwood. Plow & Hearth Fatwood is an all-natural fire starter. No chemicals nor additives are used.

Attractive Fireside Box

Fatwood has an indefinite shelf life. The fatwood sticks ignite even after getting wet. Only two sticks of fatwood are needed to start a roaring fire.

Multiple Uses

Because Fatwood is loaded with resins, the sticks ignite instantly and burn at a high rate of heat – no paper is needed. Use fatwood for wood stoves, fireplaces, campfires, chimneys, fire pits and more.

    Starts a fire!I’ve never used fat sticks before. These are awesome! We put one or two in when starting it – only have to add another if things aren’t going well. They’re pretty small so I have taken a couple backpacking to help with the (legal) backwoods campfires. The smell is fresh and natural when sitting in the box – no smell when burning.

    If you are burning wood, this is a great product for stating a fire.Although we have replaced our wood burning stove with a gas fired unit in our home, I must say this product remains important for starting fire pit fires!

    We can’t be without these!We ran out of these, and could not start our fire. These are a must staple for your home. It really helps to start a fire much quicker without a lot of other fuel. We have bought plow and hearth products for years.

    Worth the moneyI am 79 year old knife maker and depend on my wood stove for heat in my 24 x 40 shop. I received my box of fat wood kindling today and immediately set to work building a fire. After laying the firewood in the firebox I was able to easily start it up using a single piece of fat wood, igniting it with my bic lighter and no paper. It took me back to my younger years while elk hunting with my dad using pitch wood we gathered from a pitch stump. No muss, no fuss. Highly recommend this product.
