As of 2010 the company was still in business according to the info in this thread: Pinebarren Stove You could try and see if they are still around in one form or another, plus as Fred mentioned hopefully you can free up the frozen part.
I added the brand name of your stove to the title as well.

HI freetown i have tryed using penetrating oil with a mallet and hammer seems to be rusted tight even tryed a screw driver around the carriage bolt head still no moving, i got the stove that way from another person hasent used it for a long time. have to get a large pipe wrench as a last resort, seems even the nut back on the plate is frozen, As far as the mfr the address is no longer there the shop has been demolished and the owner lee has passed away within the last 5yrs, trying to find a lead for help with it, The stove is the upright model which is pictured at other pine barren sites probably in production for about last 50 yrs. Hoping to find someone who got some of the inventory before they closed up, Im even looking if any one got a junk one for parts, thx Fred

Try a few quick bumps with an electric impact on that nut to break it free. Don't go crazy, you will snap it if it is truely frozen. Next option take door off a soak in a bucket of oil for a week or more.
