    I paid $64.00 for my first 50# bag from Freshwater Organics. Price included shipping. Found out I can get it for $20.00 for a 50# bag somewhat locally through Custom Milling and he will work with you, at your convenience, for you to pick it up.

    Wow, Dawn, glad to save you that much moo-la! I was driving an hour and paying $34 for a 50# bag till I saw a Custom Milling rep in my area. Now, I drive 20 miles and pay $24.

    So Custom Milling is a representative based sales business? I can only buy online and it's very expensive!

    Dawn,
    where is Custom Milling located? I go to TN a couple times a year so I could probly get it while I am there. Right now, I pay $12.00 for an 8 pound bag at out local feed store. That is the only place around here that has it.
