    I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas where I could get organic starter, grower, and layer food in central Illinois. I'm feeding my little flock (three weeks old) fermented Scratch & Peck, but it's super expensive with the shipping, so I was hoping someone would know of something more local, so the shipping would be less.

    I've called around to all of the feed stores near us (including an Amish one), and no one seems to be able to even order any for me. They all say they have food that is GMO-free, which is good, but not organic.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!!

    Maybe Kalmbach Organic Harvest from Ohio or Nature's Best out of PA (Available at TSC) or as a last resort Purina Organic (Available at my feed store & TSC). Check their websites.
