I figure that I would throw this up here, I’m having a hard time finding Hard Red Winter Wheat locally and I was wondering if anyone could send me their source, somewhere north of Columbus would be great...

Thanks

I couldn't find a good local source either. I drive out to these folks in PA. It's probably a stretch for you.

If you find a distributor somewhere closer, post it here...

How far north? In Ashtabula County, just south of I-90 at the Route 45 in Austinburg ( exit 223 of all things) the store with the huge rocking chair can order it for you. If you are really interested I can find the number for you. Last time I was there it was $23'ish for a 50# bag.

Thanks for the reply…

I’m just willing to make the drive, thus I put in North of Columbus.

I thought about taking a chance and stopping at Medina’s Feed Supply and see what I come up with.

Astronwolf and Safe 1, I’m not sure if you know that Lehmans also has Hard and Soft Wheat for $35 for 25 lbs… Not the best price, I was hoping for about $1 per pound, so YES Safe1, if you even tell me the name of the place, address or phone number I’ll find it... at those prices, it's worth the drive.

I was thinking that maybe someone from Middlefield could have an insight or a connection.

Why can’t I live in Boise? http://boise.craigslist.org/grd/1450560769.html

There's a place in North Bloomfield too. This place and the Austinburg place probably get their wheat delivered by Frankferd Farms (see my link in a previous post.) Frankferd maintains a regular delivery route in Ohio.

Thansk for the link (even though it isn't my thread)I am going to give them a call tomorrow. I hope the pricing is a dated in the catalog and prices have come down to what I ordered the bag from B-n-B.

The "hard stuff" has to get trucked in from the upper midwest. That increases the price, and the distributor has to get their profit too. Wheat was less expensive a year ago. IMHO the price increase wasn't so bad. Beans went up in price something like crazy.

Might be worth the drive, not just wheat but lots of other items. spices for instance.

Yeah, I try (when I have the time) to stop in these bulk locations and see what they have.

I'll take a source for Soft Winter Wheat too, if you know of any.
