Contact Penn Keystone. They can arrange shipping for you. I e-mailed them in March and they gave me a quote. It was $225 a ton for bagged rice and another $99 a ton for shipping.
Shipping may be less for you since you live closer to them than I do. I can get it from a local trucking company here for $258 total. That's $66 a ton difference. Obviously I said no and will get it locally.
Depending on what you pay for coal in Mass it may be cheaper for you to do it that way, unless you know a trucking company near you that will haul it for you. http://www.penncoal.com/wst_page2.html
