When you’re shopping for wood pellets in Maine, there are many brands to choose from. The one brand that seems like it’s available everywhere is Maine Woods pellets. You might not always recognize them when you see them. The company that manufactures them uses different bags with different names and illustrations on them depending on the intended retail outlet.
