    Google Perma Gaurd and it will bring up a site where you can send them an email to find someone. Thats how I found mine here.

    Quote:i live very close to them, they have non-food grade, but i found some at linnton feed on hwy 30 towards st johns.

    at least they said they have it, i have yet to get there and verify that it says 'food grade' on it.

    YOu can drive up here to Vancouver to Orchards Feed Mill. They sell it by a 50lb bag that will last you forever! And it's super cheap. Much cheaper than you can find it online. I think we paid like $20 or so. We bought our bag in July and we made a whole bunch of 1gallon baggies of it for easier dispensing, and I think we will have some forever!

    yeah orchards was out, linnton said it was $27 / 50# when i get it i'm going to want to divide it up because i'll never use that much.

    unless someone wants to divide theirs up.

    it is called
    Diatomaceous Earth
    Diafil
    food chemical
    codex grade
    amorphous silica

    nice ppl. you just look at the price list and tell them what you want and they load your car up! not like shopping in a store, I kinda miss that part, I like to shop and touch compare etc.
