Sounds like good news for people who make and sell corn stoves, and farmers, too. But maybe bad for those who already burn corn as all that extra demand may send prices up!
Pesky supply-demand cycles!!
I would say that corn prices "will" go up. Wood prices have gone up and there in not a sudden shortage of wood. Supply and demand. I see these corn stoves that sell at TSC and other farm stores (that they still have on hand) these stoves are $1500. They are selling for $2300. - $3000. on Ebay for the last month . UNREAL ! I thought about buying the last 10 that our local farm store has and getting in on the action but ..... that also put our local sales and buyers out . This is just one time i will have to pass on the action and let the locals get the deal.
To heck with corn. If I want hot corn I'll turn on the microwave and throw in a bag full.
Meanwhile, get me a reliable anthracite distributor and I'm calling up Harman. That DVC-500 looks sweet.
I thought corn farmers were subsidized by the feds. doesn't that keep corn prices artificially low? That would make me kind of nervous about buying a corn stove. of course if I could recoup my expense in 2 years I mighht do it since it takes the feds so frickin long to do anything I'd have a few years of benifrit at least.
