Search For Rye Berries

Any DC residents have any luck procuring rye berries?  I've looked at Yes Organic Market, Whole Foods, and Harris Teeter with no luck!

Its strange, I can get Teff flour, and all sorts of other things, but the pickings for whole grains seems to be rather slim  Whole foods comes the closest with some wheat berries.

Hi there:

 

I like to buy my rye berries and other grains from Bluebird Farms:

Good luck,

Karla,

Thanks!  They look interesting.  I like the idea of heirloom grains.  However, shipping on a 4$ bag of grains ends up being $11.00.  It looks like if I order more, the price doesn't go up so maybe it is an option if I buy the right amount.  Still, I was really hoping to find a local source!

Try www.barryfarm.com. They charge $1.59/lb. but I guess shipping will depend.

Bob's Red Mill has them as well as the bulk section of a number of local markets. Not sure about DC though.
