I want to buy some hard red winter wheat. I have found it on the internet but its outrageous to ship it. I am building an emergency food supply and want to buy it in 50lb bags. I am not a farmer or I would probably already know where to get it. I am in North Central Iowa. A road trip isn't out of the question as long as its not to Oregon or something. Thanks for any input.

You are building an emergency food supply; do you know something we don't?

Lol, I know of people who are doing the same. Many are also buying up silver (oldest form of precious metal currency) and stocking up on guns and ammo.

Some people are even installing fuel tanks in case of an interuption in the supply they will be ok for a few weeks.

Crazy times...

Eh, Im a manager where I work so if the **** really hit the fan I would just let myself in at night and take all the water/food/etc. We have pallets and pallets of water, and a lot of food stuff (even though it is mostly crap, its better than nothing).

About the only place I can think of that might have an answer for you is the ISU Ag Extension Office. There's usually one in each county, with a headquarters in Ames. They seem to be the authority on Ag stuff in Iowa.
