The St Croix Greenfield is a cast iron corn or pellet stove on legs and is styled as a traditional wood burning stove. The curved top cast iron doors can open to give an enhanced view of the fire. The glass stove door remains in place.The Greenfield is rated to heat 1,800 square feet, producing 40,000 btu. It can burn for twenty nine hours on the low heat setting without re-filling. Hopper capacity is 50 lbs.
The heat exchanger is made from stainless steel to ensure long life, and the ash pan is large enough to only need emptying weekly.
Using the optional pellet conversion kit, the St Croix Greenfield can be converted to burn wood pellets. As standard, this stove is capable of burning corn, distiller's grain pellets, cherry pits, wheat and rye.
The control board slides out from the back of the stove when needed, normally it's hidden. It has some useful diagnostic features to tell you whether or not all's well with the stove.

Because it does not have an igniter, this stove will not shut down and re-ignite. When using a thermostat, it will cycle between high and low settings depending on how much heat is required.
Daily: Drop the clinkers into the ash pan - twice a day if burning continuously on high. Use the scraper rod to clean the heat exchanger tubes. Clean the viewing window.
Weekly: Empty the ash pan, clean the air holes in the burn pot.
Monthly: Remove baffle plate and clean the heat exchanger tubes. Clean the exhaust ash traps.
Check the flue venting every two months during the heating season. Check the condition of the stove's gaskets.
Summer shutdown: Remove all fuel from the stove and clean thoroughly. Sweep the venting system, vacuum motor compartment behind firebox, clean the convection and combustion fans.
