I paid $242/ton for 5 tons of delivered bulk Blaschak pea (which includes a 6.5% combined local and State of Ohio sales tax, and also a small penalty fee for the delivery distance exceeding 20 miles).

Squire Lumber in Monson is $279/ton this year for all sizes - Blaschak 40 lb.bags - $20/ton less than last year.

But not quite as cheap as everyone else on here! :x

Mine was up a little this year but Im sure it was because it was delivered at the height of diesel prices... I paid $315/ton for bagged nut Blaschak picked up in SE Minnesota. On the bright side, propane here is sitting at $1.30/gal so I may buy some for the first time in 9 years and use it in the shoulder seasons.

Please also post how it compares to what you guys paid last year so we can see if it's trending up or down. I see some of you have and it seems to be trending down. Awesome!! I paid $235 per ton delivered which is the same price as last year from that supplier. Last year I hauled my own for $200 per ton but decided to pay a little more for delivery 8-)

Off the top of my head, the delivered Blaschak bulk pea that I got in May of this year was about $30 less per ton than I paid for delivered Harmony the year previous. I would gladly pay the extra $30 per ton if it would bring Harmony back.

Best price I could find is $289 a ton for bagged Blaschak with a $49 delivery charge so my 6 tons will cost me $297 a ton total. Best price for bulk delivered is $330 a ton. First year burning coal so no idea if this is higher or lower then last year.
