where to buy local wheat berries

Hi all, 

Does anyone have a suggestion of where I can buy local wheat berries in the Hamilton, ontario area?

There is always the option of ordering online from:

http://www.ironwoodorganics.ca/

Also, just check out your local farmer's markets, and talk to some of the bakers there - the odds are that they can lead you to a good local source. 

Here in Calgary I get mine mostly from Community Natural Foods, which is the local hippie-dippie all natural, all organic type store.  They are local only, but I'm sure that there are a number of different versions of it in your area.

Good luck!
