Where to buy feed in Charlotte, NC? - Page 2
My name is Steve and I saw your post. I would like to know who and where the local guy you buy from who grinds and mixes his own blend is. I live in Harrisburg NC in Cabarrus County and have been buying my feed from Tractor Supply and also McCoy's in Midland. Need less to say I have been paying more for feed than you and would like to save some money but more importantly, I want to try to raise my chickens as naturally as I can without additives in their food. Hopefully you can help me out.
Thanking you in advance.

Well the chickens are ordered for a May delivery (YEA!) and now I am researching feed sources. I would ideally like to feed my chickens and organic, non-GMO diet...but the prices I am finding for organic feed for both a local place and after shipping online are in the $35-$40 range for a 50lb bag. YIKES! th.gif
I was going to make my own but I cant find a local organic grain supplier and Azure Standard doesnt have a drop off near me (plus I would never meet their minimum order). The feed mill in Mt. Pleasant mentioned above is very reasonable but they appear to be just non-gmo (not organic) and they mix with soy which I am trying to avoid.
I am located in north Charlotte...anyone know of some place I am missing? I want to make sure I am not missing a hidden gem before I make the sacrifice between exorbitant feed prices or pesticide-eggs barnie.gif
We live in Locust, about a half hour east of Charlotte and we buy ours from a local guy (Cabarrus County) who grinds and mixes his own blends. His feed is all natural, but not certified organic. The best part about his feed...it's $6.00 for 50 pounds
We supplement the mash with oyster shell, free choice, and they free range. All of our chickens are shiny and healthy and most lay an egg every day.
I also live 10 mins from locust could you please let me know where you buy the feed? Thanks!
