About Us

Fourteenacre is a small, family business created way back in 2008 out of our own interest in traps and trap making.

When we first got interested in trap making, it always seemed very difficult to find the sort of the detailed design information that we needed. Likewise it was then just as much of a struggle to get hold of the right bits and pieces to actually make the traps. In the years since then we have built up a lot of experience in knowing where to look and what’s going to be useful. We have made it our business to keep searching and to share the things that we find.

In the workshop we identify, create and source the sort of products which we would want to buy ourselves; whether that’s trap making parts, tools, books, DVDs or anything else. Many of the products we sell are not only hard to find elsewhere, but are often completely unique.

We look for things that have genuine practical value and we are more interested in the content than the packaging. Our first book, Trap Making step by step, was published for just this reason – we couldn’t find anything like it so we researched and wrote one ourselves.

It’s this desire for practical products that lead to the Craftmen’s Market place. Whenever we get the opportunity we like to work with skilled craftsmen and women from around the country who make and use their own equipment. We get to sell some fantastic and interesting products this way, which we know have been tested in the field and honed through use and experience. It also gives these artisans an opportunity to get recognition and reward for their skills, ingenuity and hard work, without the overhead of setting up a sales business.

Although we might be small, we’re serious about what we do. Customer satisfaction is very important to us and every customer is treated as an individual. Fourteenacre offer a full money back guarantee on any faulty or unused purchase returned within 28 days.
