    I've run 3 tons of these through a Quadrafire Mt. Vernon insert this year. I used to think highly of these pellets but will probably never buy them again (unless something changes with their formula). Although I get good heat out of them, the ash and clinkers are getting out of hand! It produces a whole lot of both, causing me to have to worry about vacuuming every couple of days which is unacceptable! This isn't even the worst part. The worst part are all of the fines and dust inside the bags!!!!! As a result there is a fine coating of pellet dust all over my living room furniture, my clothes and inside my lungs! It's unreal! I can feel the grit in between my teeth if I forget to load the stove with my mouth closed! This is beyond ridiculous and nothing like I've ever experienced with these pellets in past years. These pellets have really gone down hill. I just wish I hadn't bought 4 tons this year! Skip them!

    These pellets might be the worst on the market. The saw dust fines have jammed my pellet feed components on the stove three times costing my hundreds of dollars in repairs!
    Auger motor burned out the first time, second time it brick the feed push arm. Third time no damage but I had to pull the whole stove apart to vaccum out the fines. I have to clean it every four days to prevent a jam and another possible repair. Fortunately I can do most of the repairs myself, if I had to hire( and wait) for a tech to come, the time and cost would be doubled! New England needs to do something about their dirty product.

    Bought 1 ton of these from a local landscape supply yard in the Fall of '14. Pros are that They light off easily, and don't produce a lot of ash. Cons are that these throw very low heat. I ended up having to run the feed rate on my stove up four times what I typically do to get a decent temperature. I've since had to purchase another brand and mix bags because it got so cold out. I have burned 3-4 tons a year for the past 5 years and these by far are the lowest heat pellets I've ever purchased.

    I've used New England pellets when available for about 5 years. They were good pellets. Once I got a bad batch and called the company, they acknowledged that there was a recent issue in their manufacturing facility and sent me brands new bags to replace my old ones. Now, they are no longer available at my local retailer. I went on their website and New England Pellet was bought out by a big company based in California in 2014. I suspect that may explain some of the quality and distribution issues other reviewers mentioned. So much for buying local and supporting local business. Too bad:-(

    Enviro Evolution EV5 thats about 8 years old. Have used these pellets for years. I think there quality has diminished. This year I am getting tons of ash and clinkers that I did not get before with this brand. I am now searching for a different brand to go with in the future.

    We really like using New England pellets with our Accentra Harmon pellet stove. We had purchased from Blakeslee in Middletown, CT but they sold our 2 lbs. reserved while we were awaiting delivery. After this we switched to BT Pellets in Bristol CT. They are no longer selling your pellets this year so we had to switch back to Blakeslee. We ordered 2 lbs on 9/19 but here we are on 10/19 without pellets & cannot get thru to Blakeslee by phone. Do you have any reliable distributors here in CT??

    Have been using New England wood pellets for about 9 years now with my Harman fireplace insert. I use about 4 ton a year. Ran out one time and had to purchase Maine's Best. was to much ash and did not like the way it burnt. E very year I order my 4 tons of pellets from Middleton Lumber in Dover N.H. and this year I received a call saying N.E pellets were not selling to smaller business only to big box stores. and could not supply me with any pellets. My order with them was in 3 weeks prior to the call. Had to scramble and find some . Had to settle with Maine pellets . Please tell me if and where I can find your pellets for next year.. Thank you.

    I have used these pellets for three years now and they are constantly the highest quality pellets I have used. The highest heat output, lowest ash and always a good mix of long and short pellets.

    Late in 2013 we ordered a ton of these pellets. They worked just fine so we bought another ton. And that's where things went downhill.

    The amount of ash generated by the second batch was terrible. We were stunned to see the ash pan overflowing in just a few days. We also found we were going through pellets much more quickly.

    We have a Harman stove installed in November and started off using pellets from Lowes. They worked fine, as did the first ton of NE pellets.

    The difference between the first ton and the second was startling. There had to have been a change in suppliers or manufacturing. It was an amazing difference, and not for the better.

    Something changed big time and I won't be using them again.

    Been using these in my Vogelzang with NO problem. Not sure what the problem is here, although I see that people having problems are using the same few manufacturer stoves. Some here are saying they used NEWP's for YEARS with no problems, then they get a 'bad bag' and never use them again? Questionable. And the lack of BTU claims really don't make a lot of sense. Unless you're soaking them in water beforehand they're just wood pellets. You have to wonder about some of these reviews...
