    I've tried to find food grade DE, but shipping a 50 pound bag is as much as the price of the product itself. Does anyone know who carries it in Illinois? The places I've tried such as TSC, Farm & Fleet and local feed stores have not heard of it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
     
  2. Google Golden Blend Group and ask if they have a rep in your area.I buy mine at the flea market from one of their reps and sinceI pick it up I only pay $20.00for 50lbs.its good stuff.

    Unfortunately Golden Blend only covers the Southeastern U.S. It won't work for us, but it is a good idea for someone else looking in that area. Much better prices than any I have found. Thanks!
