    Is $259 per ton a good price? I haven't burned them at all. How do they compare to Vermont's?

    That's a good price but they are not as good as Vermonts IMHO.

    It's a good price for my area. I like Vermonts better but I'm partial to the softies.
    Barefoot is hardwood.

    (expecting beavis and butthead comments..... lol)

    Try a few bags in your stove, then decide. That is a good price.

    I haven't tried Vermonts. For 5 years now, I've burned 2-3 tons a year of Barefoots plus 1-2 tons of other brands... Barefoots are a very good, and very consistent, pellet.

    According to their website they are selling truckloads to the dealers for like $228 a ton. Gives you an idea of the markup on them.
    My dealer just started carrying them and gave me a few bags to try.
    I like them a lot. Of course I don't have the experience many of you do with the different brands but I did find them to be a very clean burning and hot pellet compared to what the dealer was carrying.
    I'll be getting 5 ton of them for next season.

    Just got the pricing from my dealer. They are going to be $299/ton. I guess due to the delivery to them here in Northern NH the price is up.
    I was hoping for a bit less on the pre season price. But I don't have many choices up here. It's that or cheaper pellets from Loewes, HD or the 2 pellet stores in the area.

    Just an fyi this is the price per ton most likely but, if not transportation to the dealers can range anywhere from $40 to $70 per ton depending on how far they are from the mill. Also they are in the business to make money. It is their main product. Unlike big box stores who sells thier product at a loss to suck you in to buy something that they have a thier much larger markups on.

    Going to pick up 8 bags of Lignetic today to for $25 and plan on getting 2 or 3 pallets from Lowes in the fall once I save up all my Lowes gift cards. I will use these for the shoulder season. Will that get me into PPC?
