    Not sure where to post this so you can move it if you wish. I am trying to purchase DE for my chicks before I move them to the coop. I live in North Central Indiana approx. 70 miles north of Indianapolis. Does anyone live around that area that knows where to buy food grade DE? I know I can order it, but the shipping is outrageous! Please let me know. Thanks.

    I don't live in Indiana but this is a list nationwide of distributers.

    For me, I drove 2 hours each way, but the cost of gas for my little car was a zillion times better than ordering it online. I bought 4 bags so I would be stocked for a while and that only cost me about $70.

    If you have an organic type food store nearby, they usually carry it. The whole foods and the local co-op here both do.

    I happened to get mine at the local animal feed store. Cost was cheap and a plus that it was local![​IMG]
     
  7. I buy mine from Golden Blend Group. But he has a stall at the flea market so i don't have shipping costs. and only pay $20.00 for 50 lbs. you might try googling Golden blend and see if they have a rep close to you. marrie
