Bulk flour

I've looked all over the internet trying to find a place where I can buy bread flour in bulk and have come up empty handed.  I prefer Gold Medal or KA but I'm willing to try others that come recommended.  I cannot keep buying 5lbs bags at WalMart, it's killing me!  I already buy my AP flour in bulk from BJs, which is unfortunately bleached but that's all I can find.  I go through way too much flour to buy smaller bags and make it worth it.  Any suggestions on where I can get bulk bread flour and/or bulk unbleached AP flour online or in South Florida?  TIA!

If you were a 50-lb bag of flour, where would you be?

Look in the Yellow Pages for a baking goods distributor. Ask a bakery or pizza place where they get their flour. Call the milling company for the flour you want and ask for the name of their local distributor. For example, here's GM's "Find Your Rep" page. Email the sales representative and ask where to buy the flour you want in the size you want. They are in the business of selling flour and would be glad to help you.

Have fun baking!

Susan,

Thanks for the link to GM flour.  I just sent a request to see if the larger bags were available in the Tulsa area.
