I just bought a Hitzer 608 stoker and I am looking for good reasonable coal to buy in the fall. Preferably in bags (about 1-1 1/2 tons)..Thanks

Hi Robb,
Where at in lancaster? I am in the northern part in Denver. One other questions why bags? bulk is cheaper, unless you have no room for a bin.

There is a place just outside Quarryville on Rt 372....I have to find my last receipt to get the name....they sell bulk or will put in bags for you. Something & Son I think......

One of those old age things I guess, I can remember how to get there, but no the name of the place!! :shock:

Is it before or past Quarryville if you are coming from 272 Buck way? I know there is a place near the Lancaster Sportsman Club on if you going East towards Quarryville.....heard they can be pricey! Was loking at Blaschalk as wel maybe get a skid of bags in the bed of truck then move them around as needed or whatever......

They are between Buck & Quarryville on the south side of 372. They are just before the first of the 'S' turns on 372 on Church Road ( I think) if you are familiar with that area. They have a small sign by the house right on the corner and the coal yard is just behind the house on the left as you turn off 372.

I don't know about pricey, I paid $200 per ton for bulk last winter and it was good quality, "clean", and burned very well. It was better quality than I had bought here in NE MD and for $13 less per ton. I don't know what they charged for bagged. There is another place on the other side of Quarryville that sells Blaschak bagged, called Hillside Acres, I've never bought there since I have always bought bulk. Still haven't found the receipt, its somewhere with last years taxes, nor have I remembered their name.....yet!

I'll be looking too. Bulk nut delivered in East Hempfield. I know a person just below Conestoga. I'm not sure where he buys from normally. I know he got a ton from Musser Supply in Columbia at the end of last year. He picked it up himself. He was very pleased with the burn and less ash then what he had been using. I don't know what the rice is but the last time I was down the nut was $220 a ton. If you want it delivered, another $30 or was it $35? Not the cheapest for sure. And that is bulk. But it does burn well.

The $200 was the bulk price I paid for Nut. They had other sizes there, pea and stove for sure, but I didn't pay close enough attention to remember seeing the rice pile.
