Lumberjacking  (need to contact us before the day...)

Help us clean up the woods, and heat your home and ours. We have firewood aplenty to share, but we need help with the labor.  We’ll be taking wood out, cutting and splitting, take a truck load for yourself and leave some for us.  LOTS of free wood for your help!
