One of the few foods we buy is wheat.  Every year we purchase about one hundred bushels of wheat from a local farmer whose methods we know.  The farmchef grinds some for our bread — excellent bread! — and the rest is used on the farm:  fermented and fed to the poultry, or as seed for our winter poultry pastures in the gardens.  We store the grain in metal drums in the barn, and at four or five dollars a bushel works out to less than ten cents a pound, about the cheapest grain feed out there.
