Source to buy wheat for grinding my own flour
I have found some at Whole Foods, but I am needing a less expensive option. Does anyone know of a place nearby to buy 25-50 pound bags of wheat berries? I have been searching for quite some time only to be disappointed by the shipping costs. Thanks for any help!
How about direct from a Massachusetts farm. I met the farmers from Four Star Farms last summer at the Copley Farmers' Market and loved every grain I bought from them. I have no idea how they compare by price for large quantities but the small bags were certainly fair for the quality. The site says $50 for a 50 lb bag of wheat berries.
Savage was bought by Cirelli was bought by Perkins, but somewhere in there is Boston's big flour wholesaler and I am sure they have big bags for very small $. for example you can get 50# bags of good bread flour for $15 or so. Nice thing about whole wheat berries is they keep for a LONG time.
They don't seem to have done a good job listing the flours Cirelli sells/sold, so you might have to call.
What are you using to grind the flour?
