Bill, I am just outside Augusta. I bought two pallets (5,000 pounds) of nut from Knight's Farm Supply in Augusta, $650 delivered into my garage on the pallets last Spring. It is Kimmels, seems to be pretty good. Not sure what that works out to per ton, about $260 I think. I haven't checked the price this Fall, but I will be getting some more before long as soon as I make room in the garage. Paris Farmers Union and Agway also sell coal around here, though since I needed nut coal I didn't pay much attention to whether they carry pea or rice or stove. Only problem I have with the Kimmels is that the bags are 50 pounds. 40 would be easier for my aging body to hoist. But hey, whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger, right?
The power outages were a big factor in my getting a stove that doesn't need electricity. Remember the ice storm of '98? We were powerless for 12 days. My Harman does have a blower to circulate the heat, but it also works pretty well without the blower. So far I have only used the blower an hour or so a day when I come home from work and crank the stove up to bring the place back up to temperature.
