    I burned a corn and pellet mixture (about 50-60% corn) in my Harmon P61A last year. It worked great.

    I bought at Parson's Farm in Hadley. It was $140/ton loose and $180/ton bagged. When I called them about 6 weeks ago, they said it was the same price. They delivered about 3,000 pounds bagged in their trailer, left the trailer in my driveway for the morning, I unloaded it, then they picked up their trailer. Great people.

    Great lead - 140 or 180 sure sound a lot better at first glance than 250+ for pellets.

    $120 bagged dry , clean ,and bagged in Auburn NY .
    That is $6 for a 100# bag.

    Try calling the local 4H club or the dairy co-op or USDA for leads on corn.
    They will all be thrilled to give you leads for corn and the farmers are
    always happy to have new outlets for their crops. ;)

    Liv, If you get any good leads, post them here - I'm also looking to mix a little corn into my pellets.
