Sorry for the delay and thanks for the welcome! DVC500... I haven't noticed your house, though I assume the pic in your avatar is a side view, not a front view? I'll take another look the next time I'm on my way to Flemington. As for bears, I've heard of bear in the area, but nothing recent... not a problem like it has been in other parts of the state. Worst I ever have are the deer and turkeys that refuse to leave my flower and pepper garden alone!

I'm looking to put a new bed on the '72 chevy, and if that works, that'll be the new coal hauler (instead of 5-gallon buckets), so great to know Ritter has the front-end loader. Black Diamond coal in Easton is closer and a little cheaper, but they're not open on weekends, so I more often than not go to Ritter. They are a great company to deal with as well... always very pleasant and good to work with.

Newbie here, Both to this board and to my new coal stove. I love it so far. The guy who built my stove, has bagged coal for $9/40lbs. Does that seem high? Is there any other dealers around southern/central jersey?

That is VERY high! :shock:

I'm way up in MA, & I was paying $7 & change for a 50lb bag. You're alot closer to the mines than I am ....

Hey tdozer, welcome to the forum. Yes $9 for a 40# bag seems way-high. Do you absolutely need bagged?
SOS Stoves in Port Murry/Hackettstown area sells pallets of bagged Blaschak rice, or loose bags.


I got my bulk delivery of Blaschak Rice from Aerni and Hitzel out of Easton, PA. $240 a ton for 3 ton. Its cheaper this year

Hope this helps

I figured that was a steep price. Bagged coal is simpler for me as i dont have a place to store bulk coal. Also im not heating my house with the stove(YET). Im heating my garage with it and only out there on the weekends. This past weekend i used about 80lbs and had it 75 degrees in there :up: Does AGWAY still carry anthracite?

Some of them do. Give them a call first. They were pretty expensive the last time I checked, and they did not have any bagged.

Hey Smitty, you monitoring the New Jersey thread now? You planning on moving down here? Two of my neighbors have their houses for sale. 3 1/2 acres, 2500-3000sq ft each :mrgreen:

Agway in Flemington closed in the autumn. I was told the Clinton location was closing too.

Agway in New Egypt has 50lb bags at $7.49. I decided to take a ride up there, but on the way, i stopped into Herman's trucking yard. I asked if they knew where the best place to get it is. The nice lady in the scalehouse replied "We have it here, but only in bulk". At $198/ton, thats ALOT better than anyone else around here. If i did my math correctly it comes out to be $4.95 per 50lbs. So i just got 1/4 ton and made room to store it. Thanks for all the help and comments.
