I appreciate this thread. We live east of Lancaster over towards the Morgantown / Elverson area. How did you locate some of these places? I'm trying to find some places that are on the east side of Lancaster and I'm not having a lot of success.

Just called around. I also went to a feed store (Brandt's in Elizabethtown, PA) to check prices on shelled field corn to also burn (their prices were nuts, don't bother) and mentioned it was for use in a pellet stove. They gave me the names of some additional places.

Pretty much any local Mennonite-owned hardware store, TSC, etc. will have pellets. I found out about Kingdom Biofuel by googling for wood stove pellets in Lancaster, PA area and they came right up. Same with Ironstone Mills.

TSC seems to have the best prices. Just be very careful, I often have to sift through multiple bags feeling the bags to be certain they are not water damaged. I usually have to put aside multiple bags. They store all of their pellets outside and I guess the manufacturer does not wrap them correctly. I had them pull another skid down the other day because what was left on a skid outside was all water damaged pellets.

Be careful at TSC, they are $5.29/bag, but one week I went the clerk tried to charge me $5.99 and I asked if the price went up. They are not $5.99. Make sure they understand this is wood stove fuel, not grilling pellets.

The Lowe's on Roherstown Road in Lancaster, PA has "Power Pellets" brand as well. I grabbed 10 bags on Saturday. They seem to burn fine. I believe the price was $5.99/bag. They had Greene Team or some other premium brand that was $6.99/bag and I didn't bother with those.

AES Hearth and Patio out in Camp Hill (right outside of Harrisburg) has a variety of brands and prices are updated frequently at https://aeshearthandpatio.com/order/

AES Hearth and Patio in Camp Hill, PA
Hamer's Hot Ones - $7.00/bag or $315/ton (~10% discount)
Energex Hardwood - $6.50/bag or $295/ton (~10% discount)
O'Malley Hardwood - $6.50/bag or $295/ton (~10% discount)
AWF Ultra Premium Softwood Pine - $7.25/bag or $335/ton (~8% discount)

The AWF pellets are really nice. I've burned them before. Burn hot, very consistent size, leave very little ash behind. As far as I know it's the only place to find them around here. The woman on the phone mentioned that Hamer's can only be purchased in bulk because it's very popular and goes quickly.

Have you tried Nissley Feed in Morgantown.

FYI: the Lignetics at EM Herr are the Hardwood only ones. The Lignetics at JB Hostetter's are the Hardwood/Softwood BLEND which in my opinion are a much better pellet versus the regular Hardwood Lignetics.

Stopped at TSC today and they are now selling Cheat River at $5.39 bag. Did not check the UPC yet, but would not be surprised if the bagged in-store brand was Cheat River and now they switched labels. Probably won't get around to burning them later this week and will report back.

Also made a special 45 minute trip out to Good's in Ephrata to grab Ironstone Mills and Kingdom Biofuel. The Kingdom Biofuel's are softwoods so should be interesting to see how they burn. The Lignetics they sell at Good's are the Hardwood/Softwood blend at $5.99/bag, the cheapest I've found in the area, which so far are my favourite besides the AWF Ultra Premium Softwood Pine.

North Forge Heating in Annville, PA

I'm still waiting additional prices. Will have to call back, but I did purchase 10 bags of EazyBlaze Premium Softwood for $5.80. They also have Energex (two varieties) and Turmans. I believe the Turmans is about $6.30 a bag, but I don't remember off-hand. The Energex's were cheaper than the EazyBlaze's. Very nice store and all pellets are stored inside. A lot of accessories for pellet and wood stove users at decent prices. They service Harman's and Ravelli's as well. It was worth the drive from Marietta, PA for me.
