I'd like to buy whole wheat flour, beans, brown rice, etc. in bulk. Organic would be a plus, but not necessary. There is a Sam's in our area, but they don't have that stuff in bulk. Costco is about an hour away. Besides E. End food co-op in Pittsburgh, are there any other sources? Thanks!

You can try here

http://www.frankferd.com/index.htm

They have a retail store or deliver if you meet the price requirement. HTH!

Do you guys know if you can place an order and then pick it up at their location? I ordered along with a buying club that is now defunct so it's all I'm familiar with.

Yeah you can. You just have to get it in the day before I think. For that there is no minimum purchase either.

A few in my church use and highly recommend Frankferd (sp) farms. It seems their website isn't really user friendly and not entirely up to date though. But they have a ton of stuff!
