A few tips from the farmers!
Use firelighters - they make it easy to start a fire with kindling.
Wait for the flames to die down a little before cooking - the rising temperature will be hotter and so food will cook quicker (similar to waiting for coals to glow on a BBQ).
Never leave a burning fire unattended or use any additional fuel lighters.
Keep an eye on young children around the fire, it can get hot quickly! Use a fireguard as a deterrent and to give a protective space.
If you need a coffee first thing in the morning, boil your water the night before while cooking dinner and store in a thermal flask - it creates a great coffee or tea without waiting for the kettle to boil in the morning.
