  • Local Wheat?????

    I'm in central Texas. So far the only sources I have found for wheat for human consumption is in Idaho or Montana. A 50 lb. bag for $25 goes to $43 w/ shipping, and it passes by hundreds of acres of TX wheat to get here.

    ?????????????Do any of y'all know a closer source?

    *OR..... what about "clean" wheat sold in area feed stores for cattle that "may be chemically treated for wevils" What chemical? How bad is it for us?
    What is the difference in it and "non-organic" that is certainly treated w/ at least one kind of chemical to keep the bugs from eating it before we get a chance? My family has moved away from alot of processed foods to producing our own on our acre. We can not afford to go "totally organic"
    nor or we inclined to. We do try to learn about the chemicals as much as possible, limit all we can, and then pick and choose the unavoidable ones.
    Sometimes it comes down to the "lesser of 2 wevils"! :D

    Most of you most likely already know this:
    Long-term storage tips for grains, other foods, ammo for that matter--
    Put a little dry ice in the bottom of the bucket before filling, leave the lid a little loose until bottom of bucket is no longer cold to seal tight. (Dry ice becomes CO2 as it melts, displacing all oxygen)

    ***Please correct me where I am wrong, and fill in the gaps, such as- How much dry ice?

    I hear that 5 gallon buckets made out of the right type of plastic to be food grade can be purchased at Lowe's (and surely other places also).

    There used to be a little store in Weatherford, TX that is now closed:mad:
    They sold wheat in bulk and would pack it in buckets injected with CO2.
    Water filters, hand operated grain mills, and and natural/storage foods.
    Does anyone know of such a place in TX now? I saw "preparedness oriented" retail stores in Utah.
