The local farm supply store moved into a new building and had a semi-open house today. Member Mepellet tipped me off that a rep from MWP was going to be there giving out free samples (I managed to get a couple bags). I got a chance to talk to the rep, Scot Bubier, for a couple of minutes. Their run of softwood pellets will occur within the next couple of weeks. They're waiting on the bag material. I asked why they didn't make more of the softwood pellets. He said the demand for their blend pellets is so strong that they only have a small window in which to produce the softwood. If they had more opportunities to make it they would. He also asked for feedback on the softwood pellets. If anyone tries them and wants to respond, his e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org.
