    They are NOT Okies! Not even close!
    The bags are full of fines and all I get is some heat but not like the Okies put out.
    A bag of Okies would last a full 24 hours. I am lucky to get 16 from the NW pellets

    We burned Okanagan doug firs in 13-14, 14-15 and 15-16 and loved them, apart from the fines. For the 16-17 season we burned Purcell doug firs and liked them better than the Okies because they had almost no fines, but they seemed to burn faster.

    This season, we just finished off 1 ton of Northern Warmth doug fir purple bags. They seem to be clones of the okie's including the annoying amount of fines. Our second ton starting on tonight is Northern Warmth doug firs - green bag. Apart from the color of the bags, the only other visible differences are the the purple bag has in big letters "SUPREME DOUGLAS FIR" and the green bag just says "DOUGLAS FIR" and the green bags appear to have substantially less fines - more like the Purcell brand from last year.

    We burn ~4 ton per season in our 2009 Quadrafire Mt. Vernon AE insert.

    For those looking for a replacement of Okie Doug Fir (purple bag) the new Northern Warmth Douglas Fir Supreme (also purple bag) is the same pellet as the Okies were originally. They are both made by Bear Mountain in Oregon. The Green bag Northern Warmth Doug Fir was made by Pinnacle. I'm burning the purple bag now and they are awesome. So if you loved the Okies then you will love the new NW Supreme.

    Hi, has anyone found a pellet comparable with the Okanagan Douglas Fir? there are not many softwoods pellets available in Mass this year. I'd pay more for less ash and less cleanings.

    I wasn't the only one duped by this bogus claim that Northern Warmth was the same as Okanagan. What a scam. Someone should file a class action lawsuit against this Northern Warmth company and drive it out of business. I will not do business any ANYONE who is perpetrating this Northern Warmth fraud!!

    Like everyone else this year, I was told by my supplier the Okanagan company was closing down and Northern Warmth was not only taking over but also producing the exact same product. Like them, nobody knew what they'd get except that the manufacturer said it would be the same. I bought one tons, per my normal, for the year and have been completely disappointed with the outcome. Compared to Okanagan, the Northern Warmth Doug Fir produced 3-4x more ash and only half the heat. After the first month I started looking for another brand immediately and while I haven't found one I like yet, I will not be using what I have left of the Northern Warmth nor will I buy it next year. If anyone has any suggestions for something even CLOSE to the original Okanagan, I'd love to know.

    Northern warmth Douglas firs are not worth the money ! They say they are okie Douglas fir absolutely not ! I've burned Douglas firs for 5 plus yrs and these are the worst the two best Douglas fir pellets manufacturers both went under okies and blazers

    The northern warmth pellets are no where near as good as the Oakanagan. Oakies were fantastic. These NW have an awfull lot of clinkers. I think last year burning four tons of oakies i only vaccummed by stove five times, cant say the same for the new named northern warmth

    In the winter of 2015-2016 I burned Douglas fir Okanagan pellets. I really liked them. Now, in August of 2016 I bought three tons of (expensive) Northern Warmth Douglas fir pellets which I was told was an exact replica of last year's Douglas fir Okanagan pellets.

    This did not turn out to be true. The 2016 Northern Warmth pellets we're not as warm and they also produced much much more ash than the Okanagan Douglas fir pellets that they replaced.

    I don't blame the dealer as they only had the information that was available to them. However next year I will not be buying Northerm Warmth pellets.

    I fell in love with Okanagan Douglas Fir pellets last year after splurging on price and buying a ton. Unmatched heat and barely any ash. For the 2016/2017 heating season, I went out of may way to buy these for four of my five tons of pellets I burn. As others have mentioned, I was told by my local dealer that Northern Warmth were the same thing, merely the vendor had changed the name from Okanagan. That said, I spent premium and purchased.

    Well, I can surely say these don't compare to what was supposedly the same pellet last year. The heat is noticeably less and definitely more ash. I still had 10 bags of last years left and have burned them on extremely cold days ...what a difference between last year's Okanagan and this year's Northern Warmth. This isn't the first time I have found a pellet I loved and then a year or two later the manufacturer made some sort of a change and the quality dropped (seeing the same thing with Vermont Wood Pellets). So disappointing when this happens. If I had paid box store prices for these, I'd felt I got what I paid for. Having paid just under $400 a ton, I feel ripped off by the manufacturer. Maybe others who have burned both previous year's Okanagan and this year's Northern Warmth Douglas Fir aren't experiencing the same downgrade ...but I surely I would just assume by a cheaper pellet next year that will give me the same quality and put the money I saved into my oil tank.
