Coal in Southern Minnesota (or the Metro Area)

Does anybody know of a supplier in Minnesota? I have found a place in Owatonna, MN that can get it next year for about $400/ 1.2 ton... I would like to find some to try out this heating season, any suggestions would be appreciated.

I don't know of any coal dealers in MN but there is a Reading Coal dealer in Ripon, WI. I think that Blaschak has a couple of dealers in WI, too. Check out their webpage - Blaschak.com. (I think) $400 is in the ballpark for bagged Anthracite such a distance from NEPA. You won't save very much by making a trip to WI and picking it yourself. You'd need to do a cost comparison that included time and effort as well as transportation costs. It could be the $400 is a real bargain. Good luck, Lisa
