Where to buy Organic Chicken Feed?

post #1 of 192
Thread Starter 

Where do you buy organic feed?  Is is sold at your local feed store?  And what kind?

I had a really hard time finding organic feed locally when I was starting out with my own chickens.  The internet was little help for a local or even regional source.  I found a store on my own by chance, but since then I have been working on a list of organic feed suppliers and retailers on a BYC page.  I really want to add more FEED STORES that actually keep it in stock.  Do you buy it at a feed store or a mill rather than have it shipped?

Thank you, but I could not find a listing for Stevens on Western.  Any other detail you could give me so I can hunt down a full address or web address? 

I did find this place in Glendale near by, but I don't know if they carry organic chicken feed or not.  Is this it?

If that didn't answer your question then if you can find a Purina dealer in the yellow pages perhaps, they can order you their Organic Pride brand of org. pellets. It's $25.95 up here in Petaluma. I guess it's an average price for an organic lay pellet. It's what I'm currently using. Recently found a feed store with cheaper org lay pellet made by Modesto Milling. Not sure if you get that stuff that far south but it was $5 cheaper.

Oh, I am sorry.  I should have been more clear in my OP.  I have a local retailer for organic feed.  I buy O.H. Kruse at Midway City Feed in Midway City.  But I have putting together a comprehensive list of places where anyone can find a source to get organic feed.  I'm looking for LOTS of more places.


Is there were you get it? Or do you have another place?
Dairymans Feed & Supply
323 East WA
Petaluma, CA 94952

How about where did you find Modesto Milling's product near you?

Thanks!

Ahh ok my bad.

I have not been to the place you mentioned yet but the place I bought the Organic Pride is:
Penngrove Hay & Grain
10035 Main St.
Penngrove, Ca 94951
707.795.5712

The other place I was told that had the Modesto Milling was:
Rivertown Feed & Pet Country Store Inc.
200 1st St.
Petaluma, Ca. 94952
707.762.4505

There is another place up here that I know has an account with Modesto Milling:
Larsen's Feed & Pet Supply Center
7400 Gravenstein Hwy 116
Cotati Ca, 94931
707.527.7328

The last time I asked them about it though they had none and didn't know when they would be getting anymore. I think Modesto Milling sells their feed to the public as well but might have to buy in bulk. Yea you gotta buy a ton minimum it looks like.

Here's my source: http://www.scratchandpeck.com/
Diana
, at Scratch & Peck, has a non-soy, non-gmo, organic feed that's great.  And she delivers to the Puget Sound area.

Also here's where I used to get organic feed: http://www.grangesupplyinc.com/

My chicks (grups too!) didn't like the chick starter from Modesto Milling... they must be spoiled... they like Hunt & Behrens own Organic starter....a locavore blog I read somewhere said it's slightly more local too.
Frizelle Enos in Sebastopol has both... $16 for Modesto vs $28 for H&B, a substantial markup from H&B,  but if you can't get to Petaluma.... (just make sure they load the right one... I have a bag of modesto to return for the H&B I paid for)
Hunt & Behrens is in Petaluma, just up the road from Rivertown.  They have several Organic mixes.  My goats prefer their conventional rolled barley over their organic dairy mix, which seems more 'processed'.
I buy whole barley from Azure Standard.com for ~$12 for 45#.   The only organic rolled barley they have is about $28 for 45#, for human consumption.  Someday 8).
Oh yeah...Azure also has sunflower seed & DE for chooks.

Thanks for this thread!
