    I called my local feed store and I asked if they have wheat. They have it for 12.95 for 50 pounds. He said there was nothing added to the wheat and they picked it themselves. He told me it was wheat seed and can be used for animal feed too. I am wondering would the wheat seed be the same as the...

    I can get hard white winter wheat for 67 cents a pound in bulk from the local coop. Is this even a good price anymore, or can I do better online?

    I get my wheat from Emergency Essentials but they have been out of most everything in superpails for a couple of weeks now. Anywhere else I can get pails of wheat? Thanks!

    On every storage list I see different kinds of wheat. What do you do with just wheat? And what are the differences in wheat? Do you need a way to process it to turn to flour?

    I saw some for sale at Sam's from another thread. It was in those big cans. (#10 can's - i think) Anyways, what can you do exactly with it? Do you just grind it up? I am completely lost on how to use it. In all fairness, I am a moron. :o: Please provide me with some wisdom!

    Do any of the forum's South Florida members know where one might buy wheat at a local store (from lake Okeechobee to Miami/Homestead). I know plenty of places online to buy it - so please, no need to provide links or suggestions for those. I'm looking to buy wheat locally, at a store (to avoid...

    What are you paying for whole berry wheat? Where do you usually buy it? We found a little amish store this weekend that sells bulk wheat. The only other place here is the natural food store and their wheat is organic and high! Just wondering where others buy wheat and for how much. thanks

    I am just now starting food storage for my family. It gets expensive quick so I am looking at cutting costs as well as saving space in my home. My question is: Why does everyone use the small 5 or 6 gallon buckets to store wheat instead of the 55 gallon drums? My newbie uneducated thoughts...
