Where to buy wheat grain in or around the Toronto area

Hi all, I'm new to the forum. I've been baking a basic oatmeal whole wheat bread for a couple of years now. I just bought a new Bosch Universal Plus and Nutrigrain mill and am looking to buy organic wheat grain to mill at home, for a reasonable price. I've been all over the Google for the last couple of days but have had little success in finding a good supply.

Thanks in advance

I have found the most wonderful grain EVER for whole wheat bread. I use the Bosch Universal Plus and the Whispermill grain grinder. I have been making yeast bread for a few years now, off and on most of my adult life but until the last couple of years was not as happy with my bread as now. The brand is Montana Wheat and the name of the wheat is "Prairie Gold"

It is very high in protien, no need to ad vital wheat gluten to it, it makes light fluffy high rising delicious whole wheat bread, the best I have ever had. You can google them and go the their website. They have retailers all over the US so you can find one in your area hopefully. I just can't sing their praises enough!

Thanks for the quick reply! Do you know if they will ship to Canada? Their prices certainly are quite reasonable.

How do you like the Bosch mixer? I just unboxed mine last weekend and haven't had a chance to put it through it's paces yet.

Have you tried Grain Process Enterprises? I posted a pdf of their products in this thread.

I had not, until just now! :)

I had found them last night on google, but couldn't find an actual web site for them. Based on your recommendation, I just called them. I can pop in on the way home and get a 10 kg bag of organic red fife for $28.10

Thanks!

.... in the 519 area code (around London), there appears to be a place selling organic grains and flours, Oak Manor Farms - here's their list o' grains, and here's their list of out-of-town retailers (including two outlets in Toronto). 

The farm also has a toll-free number, so if your local outlets don't have the product you seek, it may be worth a call to see if they ship.

Let us know how your hunt goes - good luck!

I bought 10Kg of their Hard Wheat Flour unbleached (Bread flour) a short while ago for $15.99 ..I'll have to go back soon...it's surprising how fast you can go through 10Kg of flour :)
