    This was the 1st and last time I will buy these pellets. I hate to say it but I usually buy my pellets from Home Depot. They were out so I bought 2 tons of these. I will never buy them again. I should have looked at the reviews before I bought them. They make a lot of ash and like the other reviews I have to clean the stove more often. They also have a lot a saw dust. When I used the Home Depot pellets. I would have to clean the stove about after burning 1 ton. Now with these it is like every 10 to 15 bags. My friend told me he tried them and had the same problems. They don't burn as hot as others. Yes they were $20.00 cheaper than others. Next time I will pay the extra. (You get what you pay for)

    I have tried these pellets in the past and I must say there quality control has gone down hill. They leave a large amount of Ash, burn with a lot of soot and just not the quality pellet I used to be. I have noticed the Old faithful pellets are not what they used to be. Really sad. Recently, they burn with poor heat and a lot of ash. No matter how I adjust my stove. Good quality pellets are getting hard to find. Seems like if you do not by them in the fall.... your out of luck on quality. Buying later in the season when they are more mass produced to get them out, the quality goes with it. Its a shame.

    These pellets were 90% amazing & 10% - We're not sure.

    Here's the 90% amazing: I filled the stove at 2:00 p.m. and they burned all night until nearly lunch the next day before I needed to refill the stove. Stove was on high burn. That was amazing! We've tried other pellets before, and they burn so quickly, that it's annoying enough to make me not want a pellet stove.

    Here is the 10% we're not sure about: It was odd that there was hardly ANY ash in the tray. At first, I thought that was great but, throughout the course of burning a ton of these pellets, the stove shut off about once a week needing to be deep cleaned inside, which was a very tedious task - it didn't need just a quick vacuum and brushing. We had to take it apart inside and clean it very thoroughly before the stove would start up again. We'd go without heat for about a day each time this would happen, having to wait for the stove to cool down, take it apart, go over everything with a fine toothed comb, put it back to together, and see if it would start up. It often wouldn't start up, even after all of that, saying that there was still a blockage somewhere. That was frustrating in such cold weather, and we don't have time for that. It's possible that it may just be the stove. We have yet to burn a ton of another brand to compare, but we found it odd that a new stove would shut off for deep cleaning so frequently.

    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??
