sourcing local grains in Alabama

Posted by bamaveg AL (My Page) on

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!

RE: sourcing local grains in Alabama

maybe these folks can be of assistance?

and here, We use this site quite frequently both around here, and whenever life takes us somewhere away from here.....

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

SheerLark Farm
367 County Road 327
Flat Rock, AL 35966

God's Way Farms
Midland City, AL 36350

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.......
