    Wish I could find some Okies up here. No dealers within 200 miles.

    Pine softwood from Curran? And here I thought Pine was never a good idea to burn anywhere (from fireplaces to stoves and pellets).

    Not sure what they are made of...probably mostly pine up here. I figure I'll give them a try for the price difference. Hopefully my stove won't get all sappy.

    Starting our 3rd season of using Vermonts. Great heat, low ash. I got this seasons 4 tons on a pre-season buy at $290/ton. Yeah a bit pricier but they give great heat.

    We use currans softwood pellets. They throw some great heat and not alot of ash. This is our 2nd season with currans softwood and its great. We vacuum our stove once a week and our pellet stove is our only heat source for a drafty singlewide trailer. I keep my stove on low and we get roasted lol

    Just used a few bags of the Curran softwoods. Man those things are a lot better then the Empire hardwoods I had been using. Great heat and way less ash.

    Difference between softwood and hardwood is incredible, especially with ash produced.

    Definitely not the same. Vermont wood pellets have their own mill outside of Rutland. Currans are from ny I believe.

    There are several places in vermont that have currans pellets. I know a currans delivery driver that goes to vt to deliver frequently

    I don’t disagree that currans are sold in Vermont but they aren’t re-bagged Vermont woodpellets. I don’t mind currans but they are not even close to the same quality as Vermonts or green mountain imho.

    There are many places thst sell currans pellets but currans bags them in a diff bag. I know for a fact tractor supply and Lowe's sell currans pellets in diff packaging as my husband picks up from currans and delivers to lowes and tractor supply. He just took 40 ton to rutland vt today but im not sure what store.
