We will contact you after your order to arrange a delivery date and time. Due to the number of customers and the geographic area we service, we ask that you allow up to 2 weeks for your order to be delivered, however typically we can deliver in a shorter time frame than this.

Gildale Fuel Pellets
Gildale Premium Hardwood Pellets are made from virgin hardwoods (oak, maple, cherry, and walnut) and Pinnacle Premium SPF pellets are made from spruce, pine, and fir softwoods. Softwood pellets are slightly quicker to ignite and burn with a more lively flame, throwing more sparks, while hardwood pellets produce a more constant flame. There is very little difference in energy or ash content between the hardwood and softwood pellets. Both premium pellets are identically priced from Gildale Farms, and meet the premium pellet standards. Not sure which premium pellet will work best in your stove? Ask us to substitute a few bags on your next order so you can try both.
Premium Hardwood Pelelts are made from virgin materials, contain no bark, with low ash (under 1%) and moisture content. Standard Grade Pellets contain both clean recycled wood sources and virgin sawdust material with low levels of bark giving the pellets an ash content of 1% to 3%.
Gildale Fuel Pellets are ideal for burning in all major fuel pellet furnaces and boilers. We have several different grades of pellets available and thus we can supply a pellet to best suit your specific application and provide you with the most cost effective energy source.
Gildale Fuel Pellets are very effective in pellet barbecues. Our pellets are additive-free and are completely safe to use to cook your food.
Gildale Softwood Bedding Pellets
Gildale Bedding Pellets take up minimal space both before and after they're used. Pellets are compressed softwood biomass which expand into a soft animal bedding after adding water. Manure produced is significantly less when pellets are used, resulting in a more time and space efficient cleaning process.
To cover the floor of a 12x12 stall with bedding pellets you will need to use approximately 8 to 10 bags.
On average, a horse will use 1 or 2 bags of bedding pellets per week. Gildale Softwood Bedding Pellets will hold 2.5 times their weight in water, so each 40 lb bag will hold approximately 47 litres or 12.5 gallons of liquid.
Bedding thickness varies by preference, but we recommend laying the bedding about 3 to 4 inches thick in the summer and 6 to 7 inches thick in the winter.
Yes, Gildale Softwood Bedding Pellets will clump to urine and waste.
No, Gildale Softwood Bedding Pellets will not cling to animals.
Adding a small amount of water expands the pellets into their original 'sawdust' form. The expansion of the pellets allows for easy spreading and sifting, while providing fast absorption of liquid.
Gildale Softwood Bedding Pellets are made from all natural softwood fibres and are additive-free.
