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!
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?
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.
