I have bought feed from many places, some that have opposing politics, some that are convenient, and some because they are the only place in town. Since our neighbor informed us that he grows non gmo corn and oats, our chicken and hog main stays, I go to him whenever I can. I built a 4x4x8 plywood box last year so that I could take better advantage of his fresh, local and great priced feed. It takes me about 3 minutes, at 20 mph, to get to his farm. I also bypass all of the packaging by getting bulk feed. If you can work out an arrangement with your local farmer, it works out great for him, yourself and your animals.
