Choppa Block is a firewood business established in 2020 by Kayla Miles and Caleb Davies – The primary vision being to provide quality firewood to the South Waikato community.
UK born and bred; Kayla emigrated to NZ in 2000 and found home in the South Waikato in 2004. She has over fifteen years’ experience working in local administrative and business management roles and currently spends more time in the office than at the yard (occasionally getting her hands dirty in this and the DEWL logging business when required).
Caleb was born and raised in Putaruru and owns and operates DEWL, a cable-logging forestry crew. Whilst Caleb is predominantly hands-off in Choppa Block’s day-to-day operations, he keeps involved in the background, assisting Jeff with tree-felling and other manly stuff.
Outside of the businesses, Kayla and Caleb are devoted parents of four children aged from 9-15 years – Their superstar kindling baggers and icons of Choppa Block’s logo.
Jeff has been with Choppa Block since its formation and is the main face at the yard. He was born and raised in the South Waikato and has worked in forestry for most of his life. He took on the yard work with the plan of slowing down (but no-one has actually seen him slow down yet). Anything Jeff doesn’t know about top quality, split firewood, isn’t worth knowing!
Choppa Block delivers firewood to Putaruru, Tirau, Lichfield, Tokoroa, Arapuni, Matamata & areas in between (delivery fees may apply). Alternatively, self-collection is easy to arrange.
