Wow ... what a goose chase
Ok ... Dixie decided not to carry it. Manning's has only one bag, and he can't find anything on it about it being food grade. Milton is a bit of a drive for me just to find out it isn't the right kind.
There are some people who raise goats locally who buy it, but they are out right now. Ann Fuque in Brewton can get it, but only about twice a month deliveries (and if we missed the order, it may be only once later this month). I'm waiting for her to call me back.
So far alll the others I've contacted have not been food-grade.
There is ONE place that has it, and has it in stock, that I can find. They are in Crestview though. Well, the store I think is in Mossy Head, and the farm is in Crestview. He'll sell us a bag from either place, but we need to call first. They sell 1# bags and 50# bags. The 50# bags are $43.00.
It's Gabe & Dororthy Becchinelli 850-865-0145 (or 865-0705).
So how is this ... if nobody finds it anywhere else ...
If there are up to 4 of us wanting some, does anyone want to split a 50# bag and gas to pick it up? If any of you want to, just email me, or post here (if it's ok with the board to be doing this).
I can order online too if I have to, but I'd rather give the money to someone local as well. And we could save a lot by splitting 50#. If it's too much, I can call the goat farmers back and see if they want some, but I think it might be too small an amount for them to be interested in. Not sure.
Just let me know how this sounds, or if anyone else finds any place locally that DOES sell the right kind. Too bad Dixie decided not to carry it. I'm thinking there probably is no place closer, since the people with the goats buy it in Brewton, and know about Crestview, and noplace else.
Thanks everyone. So glad to "meet" you all from around here! Maybe we can get together sometime, have a chicken party or something!
