    Not sure if it'll be of any help, but you might try The Stone Center in Bridgewater, NJ. A phone call to them can't hurt, they've been helpful to me over the years.

    NJ gravel is more than my regular nursery. And yes last time I checked 20-25 tons is considered bulk, on lower end but nonetheless bulk.

    Clayton block sells stone? Local one (freehold) is strictly mason supply.

    Clayton sells stone out of the Wall location on 18th ave not sure how far is that from you.

    20-25 tons is one tri-axle. Your not getting some huge discount on that amount of stone. I'm guessing around 40 dollars a ton?

    I will give Wall Clayton a call, right in freehold so not that far.
    Even at $40 a ton saving roughly $8 a ton, not a whole lot but still some extra in my pocket.
