Here at Peat Ireland we have been importing peat and turf from Ireland since the early 1990's.
All products come in retail friendly packaging that looks great by the fireplace.
Black Sod Turf (peat) is a unique product of Ireland. It comes from the deepest bogs in Ireland which are largely located in the midlands. Irish bogs were formed in marshy wetlands almost 10 thousand years ago. Bogs have become part of our culture and heritage. Black Sod Turf is 100% natural and organic. The brand Black Sod Turf gets its name from the unique characteristics of the peat from this area. The turf is distinctively black in color and noticeably heavy. Known locally as - stone turf - because of its weight and the depth of bog to which it is harvested from. Traditionally a two-sided spade called a Slean was used to cut the sods of wet peat from the bog. Once dried, the peat is then referred to as turf. Upon hearing the word - turf - it immediately recalls days of back breaking toil, cutting, stacking, drying and bagging winters fuel supply. Black Sod Turf conjures up dreams of lapping flames and the distinctive smell of a turf fire, which is synonymous with Irish households. To get the most from your turf, burn in an open fireplace. Light the fire using wood or other fuels and when you are ready to settle down beside the fire add in 2 or 3 Irish turf fire logs. These turf fire logs are also a great way ad flavor to food by breaking a little piece of a sod on an outdoor grill while cooking meats.
Based in Ireland and the USA, we have been saving turf on the boglands of Ireland for generations.
