Barefoot Wood Pellets

Rate this item
(174 votes)

Barefoot is a superior low ash pellet. These pellets are manufactured from clean sawdust and other clean lumber materials from cabinets, hardwood flooring, etc. from woods such as cherry, maple, white/red oak & walnut. This pellet is smaller in diameter and offers high BTUs. The Barefoot facilities are located in Troy, Pa. They are consistent from batch to batch and has very few fines.

  • Barefoot Wood Pellets are exceptional because of the quality and the cleanliness of the raw material used to make pellets.
  • Barefoot Pellets are made with clean sawdust and other clean wood waste material primarily generated in the manufacturing of hardwood lumber into various wood products such as kitchen cabinets, hardwood flooring, etc.
  • Barefoot Pellets utilize sawdust from a variety of hardwood species from the renewable & sustainable forests of Pennsylvania and New York. These species include Cherry, Maple, Red Oak, Hickory, Walnut, and White Oak.
  • Barefoot Pellets are independently tested periodically and meet the standards for super premium pellets as established by the Pellet Fuel Institute.
  • Barefoot Pellets have superior low ash content due to the quality of the hardwood raw material used.
  • Barefoot Pellets are extremely efficient in terms of low emissions, clean burning and high heat.
  • Barefoot Pellets are protected from moisture by our bag hoods which cover all shipments of pellets to our distributors.

Additional Info

  • Admin Review: Sept: 2017 - In the stove right now and just firing up. These pellets have always been a really great pellet from years past. I have not burned them in over 3 years but by the looks of them they still look good.
    Sept: 2017 - Very nice and hot burn. Pellets are good and dense. I received a 23lb bag and it burned nice! Minor tending to the burn pot was needed 2 times to simply push out some ash build up. Not bad at all and the really high heat output outweighed the effort.

    I burned Barefoot exclusively in 2012. I liked the quality and low ash. I tried a couple of ton in 2013, and was disappointed in the amount of ash. I found no difference in consumption, ash build up, clunkers, or glass cleaning than with Alleghany or Drycreek's medium range product. Unless things change for 2014 season, I see no use in paying the premium for barefoot. I will say the smell and color of the pellets are far superior, but what happened to the amount of ash? My stove is thoroughly cleaned each week, has not changed.

    I researched alot of pellets and living close to where Barefoot is made, After seeing there factory and the way the hardwood sawdust is not contaminated by bare ground dirt or outside elements , I was sold on buying and selling these pellets, they are a very busy place so a phone call to them is the best way to contact them, I wish all pellets were made with this care and quality, Maintaince of ones stove is by far the best prevention of saying a pellet is bad, I sell 1000 tons a year and find Barefoot is my best selling pellet year after year.
    thank you

    I burned Hamer and Barefoot (2 tons each) last season with excellent results in my well maintained Enviro Empress Insert stove. This year it was Barefoot and Turman pellets. The Turman pellets were outstanding - extremely low ash. The Barefoots were a big disappointment this year, consistently very HIGH ash, compared both to other brands (Hamer, Turman) as well as the Barefoots from the previous season. I wrote to the Barefoot email address, explaining my experience and inquiring if there might be a reason for the difference in performance. I got no reply.

    So, be warned - Barefoot quality is inconsistent (or has simply declined). And their customer service was poor.

    3/16/13 I have burned Hammer pellets for the last 3 years great pellet burns hot and not alot of ash .Only thing i dont like they are very dusty out of the bag. I had to buy another ton this time I purchased Barefoot super premium have burned about 15 bags and I like these pellets they give hammer pellets a run for there money . Depending on early buy price I may switch to Barefoot next year. My stove is a Big E and heat 1800 square ft.clean stove once a week .I burn 4 to 5 tons a year and we are warm.Have had a pellet stove for about 10 years. I love not making some arab rich.Good old wood pellets made in the the great USA

    I too have a Lopi Pioneer and found the Barefoot pellets cleaner burning than the other brand I was using.I tried three bags just to see if hardwood really is better. I also noticed much less smoke on startup and much less dust being blown around the room when loading the pellets.

    ihave a p38 harmon that gets regular cleaning and have been burning barefoots all winter. overall the pellets burn hot with very little ash but they are very inconsistant in size and texture. the heat output changes too. some pellets are dark with shorter pieces and burn real well, some are mixed with lighter and longer pieces and still burn good and some are all light colored with slightly longer pieces that smell stale. they burn like a cheap pellet. what happened here. all bags are marked 04/12. looks to me like old pellets were repackaged and sent back out. at 280 a ton i have to say bye/bye barefoots.

    I have an Englander 25EP, Barefoots burn GREAT! They are about 30 to 40 degrees hotter than any other pellet I have tried. They are worth the extra money. I'll be buying a lot more of these very soon.

    I heard nothing but raving reviews of these and my brother swears by them. I bought 10 bags to try and must say I just didn't see what everyone else was raving about. The ash wasn't any less than what I was getting with New England wood pellets and the heat was roughly the same. I don't mind the ash as we clean the stove 2-3 times a week, but I was expecting better performance for the nearly $2 more a bag.

    I have a Mt Vernon AE Insert and these hardwoods are one of my favorites. They burn hot and clean. Fines are minimal and pellet size is consistent throughout the ton I burned last season. I highly recommend.

    Very little dust when putting into our Harmon XXV. I generally clean stove and glass once or twice a day but have very little ash to deal with. We burn 3 ton every winter. Tried a Maine-made pellet last year [$1.50 per bag cheaper] but the dust, ash and clinkers were terrible. We will stick with Barefoot for sure!
