We control feed costs but shipping rates swing WILDLY depending on where we’re shipping to.
How can I get lower shipping rates?
Buying more than 1 pallet at a time will lower your per pallet shipping rate substantially. Getting a truck to your place can be expensive, but if a truck is already coming to deliver 1 pallet, the cost per pallet for pallets #2-10 is far less than pallet #1.
Add and remove pallets to cart to see shipping rates.
These fees are live for our nationwide providers but if you want to enquire about a possible cheaper option, email email@example.com with the subject line "Bulk Inquiry."
1-7 days from order date.
We ship from Minnesota.
Delivery time increases the further you are away from shipping location & the further you are away from any metro areas.
Can you tell me exact delivery date?
The local delivery company who is physically coming to deliver will call you the day before delivery to confirm that you will be home.
Do I have to be home for delivery?
Yes. Someone will need to be there to accept and sign.
What if I’m not home or miss the delivery?
We’ll call to confirm delivery, but if you’re not there, freight delay charges apply, which can be in excess of $100 per day. These shipping companies unfortunately cannot come back at another time unless they're paid to. You must be there at the set time to receive delivery.
How will freight come off the truck?
100% of orders will be delivered using a lift-gate.
Here's a video showing how this will work.
The driver will use a pallet jack (just like video above) to remove pallet(s) and will NOT move your shipment further than where the truck pulls up. They will not take pallet(s) inside any facility and you are responsible for moving the pallet(s) once the driver takes it off the truck.
Will the delivery driver move pallets too?
No. They can only move the pallet(s) from the truck to just off the truck. They cannot take feed off the pallet or move more than a few feet from where the truck backs up.
We recommend buying a pallet jack (or find 2nd hand locally for about $50) to help move pallets.
Where will the truck back into?
An 18 wheeler semi is the truck you should plan on coming.
Before ordering, consider how/where the truck will come in and out and where the driver can physically drop your pallet(s).
Drivers cannot back down winding driveways or drive onto property they cannot turn around on.
The ground the pallet(s) will be moved on is something to consider as well.
- Pavement = great
- Gravel = will not work
1 ton (2,000 lb) is how much weight 1 pallet can hold. This comes in 23 lb bags of feed (83 bags per pallet) or 1909 lb of grains and the rest being bags, pallet, etc.
1 Ton Tote?
Apart from bagged product, we can also deliver our feed in totes (see picture in photo gallery above). This is essentially a 4-walled tarp that contains loose grains rather 83 individual 23 lb bags.
How do I buy more than 10,000 lb (5 pallets)?
We can do this but can't pull live trucking rates and take payment online. Please call or email us to discuss this in more detail. We can accommodate a grain truck or rail car if you have a larger/commercial operation.
- Product cost will be about the same
Trucking rates = add 5 pallets to cart and add about 20% - this will be near the final trucking rates

We mill your feed after you order & rule of thumb is 1 year. But keeping in a dark, cool place can increase shelf life.
Will this set up change, this does not meet my needs?
Yes! Sign up for our emails and we'll keep you posted.
Upcoming changes will include:
- No lift-gate delivery (cheaper & shorter delivery time)
- Bulk grit & oyster shell
How does the subscription work?
Subscribers save 5% on every order, forever!
Choose frequency based on your flock's needs. Weekly, monthly, quarterly, once in a blue moon—whatever floats your coop.
Change the frequency and quantity or cancel at any time.
Is your feed medicated?
Is your feed fermentable?
Yes! Here's a guide.
Where is the feed made?
100% of grains are farmed and milled in the Midwest using only U.S. grains from local family farms.
Is this feed suitable for ducks, geese, and other waterfowl?
Why does my feed vary a little between orders?
All feed is 100% Certified Organic, which means that depending on various factors, it can look a little different each time we mill it. For example, if it's been a particularly wet or dry summer, the field peas may be a different color. This is the nature of milling all organic feed, and is out of our control. We do sell pellet feed if you find you'd rather have uniform feed each time. It is exactly the same ingredients as the whole grain feed - but pelletized.
What about shipping?
We ship Monday - Friday. Shipping takes 1-3 business days via UPS.
YES! All packages ship FREE via UPS from Minneapolis.
What's up with the odd weights?
Shipping weight limitations - this is how we keep our costs down.
