Wood heated the farmer three times- once when they gathered the wood, once when they split the wood, and final time when they burned the wood. Come out to Longstreet Farm and get warmed up using a two-man saw and splitting wedge; learn how farmers used a froe to rive shingles or a broad ax to hew beams.
