Woodthyme Ltd is a non-profit organisation all profits from our produce are invested back into the project.
We work with many organisations to maintain the conservation of the woodland and animals that live there and have a management plan in place to maintain the unique echo system at Idston Woods and Scrubland.
In the spring, summer and autumn we produce Charcoal using ancient wood colliery methods, in the autumn and winter we produce logs solely from maintenance of the ancient coppice. We seasonally produce preserves such as jams, chutneys, cordials, relishes and pesto.
We also deliver courses in Wood Colliery, Flora & Fauna Identification, Foraging and hope to also deliver Horse Logging course in the near future.
We are also able to supply from our in house tree surgeon James Denny, woodland services. We do coppicing work and have a woodland nursery.
We have given permanent homes to Dartmoor ponies from The Dartmoor Hill Pony Trust and are taming and training them to be ridden and work in the woodland. This method was chosen as ecologically it has the lowest impact on the woodland and gives the ponies a job for life.
We are also host members of WWOOF UK.
