    Hello fellow egg-lovers,

    Well the chickens are ordered for a May delivery (YEA!) and now I am researching feed sources. I would ideally like to feed my chickens and organic, non-GMO diet...but the prices I am finding for organic feed for both a local place and after shipping online are in the $35-$40 range for a 50lb bag. YIKES! :th

    I was going to make my own but I cant find a local organic grain supplier and Azure Standard doesnt have a drop off near me (plus I would never meet their minimum order). I found a local feed mill in Mt. Pleasant that is very reasonable but they appear to be just non-gmo (not organic).

    I am located in north Charlotte...anyone know of some place I am missing? I want to make sure I am not missing a hidden gem before I make the sacrifice between exorbitant feed prices or pesticide-eggs :barnie

    Thanks all!

    Post your question on the NC thread and you should get lots of answers. I don't remember the places but, I do remember
    seeing some of the NC feed stores advertising organic feeds here in the Johnston Co. area. Good Luck.
