Hey if your growing it already, why not! Excerpt below, full story link below that. Burning corn was common place in southern Illinois and Indiana. Siphon off a couple of acres worth and heat your home.
RINGTOWN - Farmers seeking an alternative fuel to heat their homes might save a few dollars by burning feed corn, according to Ronald C. Fetterman, Union Township.
In November, he shelled out $4,800 to buy a new corn-burning furnace for his home at 123 Aristes Road.
"I figured with what I'll save on fuel in two years, it will be paid for. This winter, I think I'd be spending more than $2,000 if I were burning oil heat. We're saving money because we're raising our own fuel," Fetterman, 76, who grows more than 60 acres of field corn on his farm, said Tuesday.http://republicanherald.com/news/family ... -1.1649079
