Comments about Product: I love the Super Fatwood for all the reasons mentioned above, but especially because it is the perfect length for my large fireplace grate. The regular fatwood is rather small and I need to use more of them. I find it wasteful. But the Super Fatwood is PERFECT!
Comments about Product: I bought this as a gift for my husband. He loves it and lights it directly for a fire, no crumpled newspaper. Buying Duraflame logs is now a thing of the past for us. My only complaint about it is that it is so resin saturated that there can be smoke at first. We have found that if we burn a little newspaper to get the chimney hot and improve the draw that it mitigates a lot of the smoke. Otherwise this is a great product.
Comments about Product: I liked the Super Fat Wood because it WAS 12 inches long. When I reordered, I received 8 inch fat wood. The picture online and in the catalog both still show the 12 inch long fat wood and there is NO mention of the reduction in size to 8 inches in the product description. I will now look for another vendor who still sells 12 inch fat wood.
Comments about Product: We have used your fatwood for a number of years in our soapstone woodstove and 1830s fireplace.
The larger style is definitely worth the extra price. The sticks "stay in place" to ignite more of the fuel, rapidly.
It's a good product.
Comments about Product: Best stuff I ever used, I can even get our woodstove to start on the first try. I've even taken it to go camping, great for lighting your campfires. Just need two little pieces.

Comments about Product: Terrific product! I've found the extra length very helpful since I have a large fireplace. I've been using my fireplace daily and I'm very satisfied with the performance of Super Fatwood.
Comments about Product: I purchased the "Super" fatwood and the regular fatwood at the same time just to test them side by side. They performed exactly the same in 3 separate tests. They both lit in about 10 seconds with a lighter and burned out at almost exactly the same time 8 minutes later. It is not a bad product at all. But the regular fatwood is cheaper and works just as well. At least for the batch that I got. It just wasn`t all that "Super"
Comments about Product: Live up near Yosemite, use fireplace daily, go through approx 2 35lb boxes per year. Starts fires quickly and easily everytime. Have given to friends and family as christmas presents. They all have loved the product.
Comments about Product: I usually buy the regular fatwood, and I will go back to the smaller, regular size...but then, our fireplace is not a huge one, it's more like a medium sized one. I found that after using the super fatwood, it did not work any better. It is thicker and seemed to take longer to ignite. It is still a decemt product; I just prefer the smaller size, even if I use a few more.
Comments about Product: We live in the great state of WV. One week before Christmas we had a major power outage and boy did this come in handy. Our only source of heat for 7 days was our fireplace and when you have to keep one going 24/7 you need something reliable that will start quickly without tending to the fire time and time again. We plan on getting it again for the 2010 season. Thanks for having great products.
Comments about Product: We have a place in Mammoth where we use our fireplace all year long. We were fans of Fatwood until we decided t order Super Fatwood last time. Super Fatwood is much larger than the other product and is so saturated that it lights easily every time we use it. Because it's longer, it can really reach into the wood stack to get a strong fire going faster[...]Ordering Super Fatwood online from Plow and Hearth was a positive experience and we will certainly order again.
Comments about Product: We are very disappointed with the product. They are very hard to light and to stay lit. I felt like we were wasting them as it took several to get a fire going. We wish we would have tried a smaller amount first. We won't be buying them again.
Comments about Product: Plow and Hearth Fatwood is by far the best I've ever tried/used. I was sold on it the first time I used it 2 years ago. That's why I continue to buy a box every year and no other brand. I use it in the fireplace in the house and in the firepit and grill outside. It lights well and stays lit even in the wind!
Comments about Product: Who would have known that something so little, and, honestly, not so pretty, could do something so fast and beautifully? My husband and I no longer dread using our fireplace, as it never takes more than 5 minutes to build a successful fire with the super fatwood! ...Is it winter yet?
Comments about Product: Only had to use 1 stick per fire. Very little if no kindling required. Used in my wood stove burning almond. Ignited small cylindrical pieces of almond easily. Will definitely purchase another box for next winter. 1 box lasted from the first fire in October to the last fire in April.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
