I buy grains from Montana Wheat through a local whole foods co-op. If you contact the company, they can probably put you in contact with a co-op in your area. Since we have probably over a hundred people purchasing all together, sharing the shipping costs, it comes out better price-wise than ordering individually online.

Default Midwest Source of Bulk Food

If you live in the Midwest, you might want to check out Country Life Natural Food based in MI. They have an extensive catalog of grain, rice, beans, and other food stuff -- many of them organic. Their prices are comparable to other big mail order suppliers and they offer FREE HOME DELIVERY to many parts of the Midwest. Check out their PDF catalog at their home page, read about their company truck delivery routes and give them a call to see if free home delivery is an option for you. I use them and their delivery trucks save me 25% on the total cost of our bulk food preps.

I buy mine from the local grain elevator. I put a big ol' tarp in the bed of my pick-up, and just auger it right into the middle in a medium-size heap. I usually get around 1000 lbs at at time like this. 1000 lbs will almost fill 3 blue plastic 55 gallon drums.

I have to pick out the bugs and chaff, but it is not a big deal. I only clean what I need to mill that day.

Our Co-op orders from Country Life also. If you are in West Tennessee, check out Bulk Natural Foods for information. There are pick up locations from Jackson to Memphis, and points in between.

I also tracked down the Wheat Montana at a Walmart. But then I also found that there are some Walmarts that DO carry it and that aren't listed online... so check at your Walmart even if it isn't one of the ones listed. It is very good wheat, and with no shipping costs......

Is anyone able to order from the LDS online store? I just looked and the wheat is back ordered, but it appears that it might be free shipping? That's amazing! The other places I was looking, the shipping is astronomical. I did place an order from Augason Farms today with 7.99 UPS ground shipping which isn't too bad. I ordered a 45lb superpail for about $60 with shipping. I know I can do it cheaper. This thread is great!

Oklahoma Food Cooperative - Local Food, Local Farmers - Farmer's Market, Natural, organic, health, sustainable, locally grown, meat, vegetables, nuts, produce, bread

Here's an example from Magee Farms there:
Order number of bags. Harvested with our "all Crop 60" combine. We use no chemicals to raise our crops, so that you our customers can have fresh untainted grain for milling,sprouting or eating as a cooked cereal. Certified Naturally Grown $8.00/25# bag

Yep, it's a .coop not a .com Great place, multiple sources, you can pick up or order from the closest one to you.

Not associated with them, just know people who order from them.

Wish our Wally world carried bulk Montana Wheat...they don't even want o order it for me.

No feed stores anywhere nearby. Basically nothing is here. We are rural mountains and sometimes it's such a pain to buy the most basic of items.

Genevieve thanks for the great info - I'm going to check it out now!
