Why are wheat berries more expensive than flour?

Wheat berries shouldn't cost more than flour, rignt?  If that isn't right, I'd sure like an education as to why.


Today I stopped in at Cash and Carry in Seattle and checked out the prices on 50# bags of flour.  Bleached, unbleached, whole wheat (no additives either), seminola, etc.  One such bag was marked at $10.95 and the others were between $12 and $18 (although the seminola was higher than that, I think).
