Bought a pellet stove last year and have been searching everywhere to purchase wood pellets. Get the same story at every location - "we are out and have no idea when they will be coming in, try back in January". Checked Millers in Geneva, Phelps Cement, Mennonites, Home Depot etc No one has any. What a worthless investment!!! Last year pellets were about $220 per ton, now everyone is telling me $300!!

I just called Ace Hardware and they don't carry them but said there is a place on the Turnpike Road in Aurelius that has them. They couldn't think of the name of the company but believe it is some sort of trucking company. Good luck to you!

I spoke with Ferrarah's yesterday. They are expecting a shipment either this week or next. I think they told me $287.00/ ton. These were always the good hard wood pellets, not the cheap stuff

I have checked everywhere and here's what I'm finding. Glenwood foods sells them at 240 a ton. Call and get on their list. I'm not sure when their next truck will come in but it took me 2 weeks to get some from them. Country hearth and leisure had them in Auburn at 315 a ton. I beleive they have some in stock. The place on Turnpike rd. in Throop is Butler's Sales. It looked like they had a few truckloads come in this past week but they may be for pre-orders. NYC Where did you buy your stove from? They might be more inclined to save some for you since you are a customer. Worst comes to worst you can buy the garbage ones at Lowes.

Try the Tractor Supply Store at the top of Beans Hill in Geneva. I have seen signs that they sell by the ton.

Most places don't have any and won't be getting any. Butler's and Pine Creek Farm and Feed will put your name on a list for shipments that may come in at the end of November.

Townley Coal and Stove--$295 a ton, but they've got 'em and they deliver.

I don't know why anyone would buy a pellet stove when this problem comes up all the time. Pellets are made of compressed saw dust, so why is there a supply problem?
Sell the pellet stove and put in a coal stove. Coal has more BTUs and is always available.

I agree 100%. Coal is a nice even heat. Easy to maintain (for most). I have a Hitzer that has a self feeding 75 lb. hopper. I'll spend about $850.00 on coal this year compared to $3,000.00 for fuel oil. It heats so well I can leave a window in the living room open when necessary. Can't beat it.

I really feel bad for those poor folks who filled up their tanks with fuel oil for close to $4 a gallon in august thinking it was going to get higher and now its down to close to 2.50 a gallon....thay must be pretty PO I love the constant steady heat my stove provides...makes me forget Im living in a house that was built in 1812 And I have the drafts to prove it.

Mine is set to 1/3 burn and it heats up the house twice as good as forced hot air that if you set it any higher than 62 you likely could not afford groceries. It was well worth the $1,200 dollars and pays for itself by the (would be) second tank of fuel oil.
