my business at www.mycrotopia.com
has really been speeding up,
esp. orders for quarts and spawn bags of rye.
i'm going thru about 20-30 pounds every week.
my local health food coop is fast becoming unable
to keep up with my needs
so i'm seeking alternatives.
what's a good price/source for say 50 pound bags of rye ?

I get my rye at the local farm beurau (spelling), it costs 8.50$ US for a 50lb bag. The guy at the place told me they use it for winter grazing for cattle. Hope that helps.

I get organic rye berries for 8.75 per 25 lb bag from a health food distributor. I use my business id and sales tax number to get that price. I don't know what the shipping would be, but perhaps they could set up drop shipping. Let me know.

I bought a 50 lb bag a few months ago from a local ag store for just a little over $5. Most ag retail stores should have all you want because the local cattle farmers use a lot.

No fungicides? It works? Most have failed with that.

Is this in reply to my answer? If so, i have never had a problem growing mycelium with this rye. I read every thing on the bag and never saw anything about a fungicide ingredient. i have used this same rye with almost every grow and I have never had a problem with mycelial growth.

No fungicides? It works? Most have failed with that.

i forgot to take a picture but the name should be all you need. During the season it goes for $13.50 but if you can find it leftover in the off season you can buy it for really cheap: $5.50 per bag at the store I got it from. I would also go straight to the source. Go to the pennington web site and I bet you can buy it year around.

The health food store would be able to order anything for your needs. If you told them that you need a bag a week they would make sure to have it in stock. Also since many are locally owned you could prolly negotiate the price a bit for your continuing purchases. Especially since they usually have already high prices.

A brand the healthfood store in my area used came from a manufacturer in Nebraska called Grain Place Foods INC. Their rye is certified organic and only comes in 25 lb. bags for $9.15. They also ship to private individuals.

Ask for rye or rye berries. They go by both names. The only place Ive ever got them is at a health food store...any decent sized town should have one. Popcorn and WBS are both excellent subsitutes if you cant find them.
