    I live in Alaska and really had a hard time finding any. I went on E-Bay and found a company EarthWorksHealth that sells a 10 lb bag for $25 and that's WITH shipping. You have to go throught the E-Bay sight or the shipping's crazy expensive...........hope that helps

    You could check with Frank Organic Feed & Supply, in Jefferson. I know some people get it there. I would just check to make sure he has it in stock, before making the drive.

    I didn't know FranksOrganic had it too! I've been looking for a supplier for DE. I get my feed from Franks too- but I get it through a local business around here. I bet I could save a lot just driving to Franks and getting it.

    A lot of people in the Madison area get their organic chicken feed either directly from Frank's or from Nutzy Mutz.

    I would have such a hard time controlling myself if I went anywhere with chicks! [​IMG]

    Edited to add, I wonder if Mounds could get in a large bag of DE? They've always had great customer service for me, when I wanted something they didn't usually carry. Fertrell carrys it, along with their line of poultry and livestock feed additives. I bet a lot of feed mills could get it, too, if they can get Fertrell stuff.
