sourcing local grains in Alabama

bamavegJanuary 16, 2010

Hello gardenweb friends! I am just now starting to grind my own grains at home w/ a Wondermill grinder. Living in AL, it has been difficult to find local grains other than corn. I have spoken w/ several folks who have been grinding their own grains for years and they either buy their grain from Walton Feed out of ID or United Natural Food Co-op that delivers out of their warehouse in ATL to several co-ops around Birmingham (where I live).

Anyone have suggestions? Or know of any other co-ops or buying clubs in the area? Thanks!

and in ALABAMA, maybe these folks can maybe point you in the right direction:

SheerLark Farm
367 County Road 327
Flat Rock, AL 35966
256-632-2465

God's Way Farms
Midland City, AL 36350
334-790-6896

I hope this is of some help......
My bro-in-law has a real nice little farm on Sand Mountain just outside of Ider, Al. I met the drummer from the "Alabama" band at a little store down in the valley near there once quite a few years ago. We still go there once or twice a year.......
