I recently bought a 50 lb. bag at a local feed store for - I'm thinking it was $15.00 and change. However, that's not the end cost. You'd still need to buy mylar bags, oxygen absorbers and a pail with a lid. Also, I have no idea if the wheat is red or white. The package says only WHEAT. I'm thinking I'll check into the LDS wheat. $28.00 seems very fair to me.

Also don't forget the added cost of that pebble that might be in the wheat which will cause your grinder to go Kaput! You also need to know if its 12% protein so you know how much Vital Wheat Gluten to add. The best wheat I have found is www.honeyvillegrain.com

$ 42.00 for 50lb bag + $ 4.49 shipping. Its excellent Wheat and very clean.

This place has very inexpensive wheat but I am not sure about the shipping. I found it through a link from a Mormon girl on Youtube. http://www.waltonfeed.com/
Most of my food storage came from Walton Feed. Shipping can get high fast, especially at today's prices. But they do hundredweight shipping for orders over 200 lbs and this is a money saver. It's still probably cheaper to order from the LDS or try to find it locally. I have no affordable local sources, so I had no choice but to mail order.

Remember, you need to store both red and white hard wheat. They are used for different things.

Red for breads and white for pastries and such, typically.
Hard wheats are for breads and such, soft wheats are for pastries, regardless whether they're red or white.

White wheats are less strongly flavored than the reds. Reds can be a little bitter.

if my calculations are correct, using LDS, the canned wheat for 28 bucks shipped, works out to be around .84 cents per lb. the 25 lb bag works out to be around 54 cents per lb after buying wheat, bucket, mylar and O2 absorber, not counting the fuel cost to go get it at the LDS store and of course your time to do the work to get it stored correctly. So the shipped canned wheat from them is a deal.
