Hello All,

Does anyone know where I can get hard red winter wheat in Minnesota? shipping rates have gone through the roof and I am looking to source some grains locally.

Have you tried contacting Elevator operators? Depending on how much you're willing to buy (and if they're storing the product) they'll sack it and sell it to you.

Have you tried some of the local food co-ops or health food stores? They might carry it.

I have been picking up some for bread making at our local Whole foods store, but they are way over priced by the pound. I haven't tired any elevators yet, but that is a good idea. I am just looking to add a bunch for my home food storage, but don't want to pay the same price for shipping as the grain itself costs.

Call your local Church of Latter-day Saints (LDS, Mormons). They will know where the best deals are.

Thanks Susan. I found a place about 45 minutes from here that i am going to give a call tomorrow. To be honest, I have been a little afraid to call the Mormons. No offense to anyone, I just don't know why.

Why? They have no qualms about calling you. grin

Truely though, if you have a question about stockpiling foods they are the ones to talk too.

Just to be on the safe side, call them from the other side of town from a pay phone, in case they want to track you down!! grin
