    Would love to start a fodder system but have been unsuccessful in tracking down a supplier of bulk barley seeds. Not many farms or suppliers in the area?

    Anyone out there have a supplier in Greater Boston?
    Thanks for the help. Looking forward to getting started.

    You might consider checking at beer brewing supply shops. They often have big sacks of barley at reasonable prices. Good luck!

    On a side note, how's the weather there? Heard you got quite the storm. I'm originally from Mass.

    Also, a google search just let me to Four Star Farms in MA and it looks like they grow barley and sell their products all over, including at City Feed and Supply in JP. I'm not sure what their prices are like, but it might be worth looking into if you could get a bulk deal.
