ABOUT US

Woodys is a family run business owned by husband and wife Philip and Sarah Whatton. The current firewood and forestry business was originally set up by Philip’s father and uncle in 1980 with Philip and brother Tim working alongside.

The Whatton family have been in the timber and forestry business for over 100 years, diversifying from saw milling and forestry to today’s firewood and forestry business.
