It's Wild Stoves' birthday today, so we enter our 5th year of trading this week! It's been a deeply rewarding journey enriching the outdoor experience of thousands of outdoor lovers the world over. From humble beginnings we have grown into a vibrant and busy company, moving into our Bridport HQ in 2011 and launching in the USA last year. Thanks to all who have supported us over the years and told us how much you love what we do.
Wild Stoves was set up in 2010 by husband and wife team Jonathan and Lucy Rouse. During 2010 and 2011 they toured festivals with their hallmark 1950s caravan and Berber tent giving workshops and demonstrating stoves. Accompanied by their young children, the pitch always had a part-business, part-hangout, and part-creche feel! It was a magnet for firelovers (i.e. nearly everyone) and there was usually a brew on or lunch being cooked on one stove or another.
