Went to great set-up today and picked up hazel bean poles/pea sticks. 2 per pole, 5 for 20 sticks. Proprietors live in the 30 acre woodland and are living their dream. Near Kettering, Northamptonshire. Go to hazelwoodlandproducts.co.uk.

Great link, thanks.

Does anyone else close enough fancy joining up on a guided walk there?

I'd love to but they're too far away for us. I'd be very interested to hear about their set-up if anyone does visit as I would like to do something similar commercially. This year I've managed to harvest my own hazel and field maple poles from trees planted several years ago.
