WHEAT - Price per pound?

Postby Murby » Wed Feb 15, 2017 2:17 pm

I need to stock up on some hard white wheat and was wondering what everyone is paying for it? By the time it ships to your home, what is your price per pound work out to?

Honneyville has it for 58.99 + 4.99 shipping for a 40lb pail. I've been getting mine there for about 3 years now, have had no problems with Honneyville. Had problems with beprepared.com, won't deal with them anymore. Good luck.

What kind of problems did you have?

You're paying well over $1/lb.. that seems like a lot.

I've also gotten mine from Honeyville. And the shipping price is the reason why. When you price-compare at other places, you'll find that the shipping will kill you, because of the weight. -k

beprepared.com on 1 occasion refused to replace damaged goods they sent me. Well, I ordered once more, damaged again, they wouldn't even return my calls or e-mails, so they're done with me and about 10 other customers that I know. Their loss.

Honeyville, for me has a good product and I have never had a problem with them on anything that was damaged in shipment. I have ordered from other companies and never had a problem with them, only this one. The shipping is only 4.99 on anything you buy, whether it's 1.00 or 1000.00, makes a big difference.

There are other good companies out there, you just have to check them out. But remember, you only get what you pay for.

It's only pricey if you can't afford it, like I said you get what you pay for.

I came across smaller quantities at a Mennonite bulk store. Couldn't quote a price per lb but it may be an option if you live near an Amish or Mennonite community.

If you stop in, ask about ordering larger quantities and pick it up at their store to save on shipping.

I buy 50 lb bags of re-cleaned wheat for under $15. Same with oats and barley. Of course, that IS at the local feed store.....

The amish store outside of Charlottesville, Virginia sells beautifull wheat at 50 lbs in the low 20s. They have about 5 kinds including Bronze Chief. It is about a 2 hour drive for me, but I pick up lots of other bulk stuff from them. And,,,,,,,,, we hit the winerys and cideries. :D

I've done that too. But, it wasn't very clean. I had a lot of sifting to do to remove a lot of bits & pieces, before freezing & storing. -k

We buy the Augason farms 26lb square buckets from Walmart at $18 a bucket. Free shipping and we pick it up at the store. All of our wheat and oats are in square buckets from Augason farms ordered online through Walmart. Buy the bucket wrench if you go this route. Much easier to open but you can use a screw driver if you want the exercise and ability to check out your first aide preps.

Are you saying their buckets are somehow different than a normal 5 gallon or pickle bucket lid?

As much as I loath having any kind of association with any church, I did decide to find out what they charge for the wheat.

The 26lb buckets from Walmart w/free shipping still won.. But I'll admit it was a close call and if the LDS was just a mile down the street, I might have reluctantly went for it.
