    I'm sorry I can't answer your question - I don't order many thing over the internet. But at a local fruit tree nursery (they also sell produce) they sell 50 lb bags. Have you looked around your area? You may be able to save some $ if you don't have to pay shipping. MW

    If the feed stores can't get it, try co-ops or a health food store. They might be able to order it for you. I get mine at the local feed store. You can buy a whole bag or just what you want at a time.

    Ozbo.com - 50# Food Grade for $31.28+$4.95 S/H.

    If you order more items, the S/H stays the same. I ordered 125 egg cartons (Huge box) and the 50# DE
    (Also Huge box). S/H for both was only $4.95 and I received it in 3 days! If you keep an eye on their site,
    they run Free Shipping specials once in a while.

    Talk to your local farm/feed store and see if they can get supplies from Central Farm Supply in Louisville,KY. They are a idstributor for farm supply stores. I just ordered a bag and it was $27 for a 50lb bag of Perma-Guard 100% CODEX grade DE.
