    I tried looking for grain mills etc in my area and didnt see any. I found some places that ship grain in bulk but it is really expensive to ship to FL. I know I can get stuff like corn and blk oil sunflowers seeds but where do I find bulk flax, wheat berries, oats, wheat etc.? Anyone from FL know? I am in NE fl

    Same here.
    I pay $15.00 at BJ's for a 40lbs mix of corn, millo, and sunflower seeds.

    Did you Google "feed mills" for your area?
     
  5. The best place to get bulk grain is at Mother Earth. Because it is human food grade, it's likely quite expensive...I really haven't checked prices. They get stuff in 50# sacks to put in the bulk bins. I know they will sell the bulk bags because I bought a huge bag of wheatberry from them a few years back.

    We could check with someone like the feed store in Alachua that makes their own feed. I don't know if Seminole Feed makes their own anymore...they used to.

    Here are a few others:

    Thank you for the great references!! I will post if I find any good deals. I did see a 40 lb bag of blk oil sunflower seed at the TSC the other day for 14 dollars and something. I thought that was fairly decent. I might try to grow some stuff too.
