    Does anyone know what type of stores are best to buy bulk seed for things like corn, sunflowers, field pea, hay, oats, etc. Feed stores? Internet?

    Thanks

    Feed mills sometimes have a wider selection available than feed stores, for bulk or bagged feed ingredients. They also have additives for balancing feeds. The internet is always a good place to start looking for local sources. You could also ask on the thread for your state in the "Where am I? Where are you?" section of the forum.

    We always bought all the hay we were going to need for the winter all at one time, from a grower. Some areas have feed stores that carry hay, though.
