    I can't find anyone on the Coast of Central California to buy food grade DE. Any ideas? I have asked local farm supplies but they won't sell it. Bakersfield is too far to drive from Arroyo Grande.

    I've had to order online here in VA. Noone carries the food grade here. Crazy!

    I am considering buying a huge amount and then repacking for distributing to other folks in our area so we can all save on shipping.

    Just google Diotamacious Earth California and see who would be closest to have it shipped.

    Good luck!

    Honestly, you'll drive yourself crazy trying to find a local place. I ended up ordering from:


    It's a bit of a convoluted ordering process, but I got it within two days, and the price quoted includes shipping--so it's not really that expensive if you're getting the 50 lb bag. Which, by the way, fits perfectly into a large rubbermaid container. [​IMG]
