Bird food in Bulk

Just a question this time. Is there some place I can buy wild bird food in bulk with delivery? I go through 80 pounds a month. It is expensive in 20 lb. bags.

Thank you for your reply! You have some great options. However, I live way out and a taxi would cost me more than the food each time! I really need an on line source. Enjoy all your feathered friends!

Bulk seed NEW
by: Margaret Mariam

In MA the best buy for sunflower seeds (which is the only seed I use) is Ocean State Job Lot, which sells 50 pounds for $25-20 dollars.

I use 100 lbs @3-4 weeks, plus 3-5 suet bars @ day. Those are cheapest at Home Depot, if you buy them by the 8 pack. Home Depot's bird seed is ridiculously expensive.

The delivery part may be possible if you have a local taxi service. Around here you can pay a cabbie to pick up a package and deliver it. Though I suspect they won't love you if they have to lug 50 lb bags...

But we also have "informal" taxi services and UBER which are another option. I can't lift the bags - so the store (thankfully) puts them in the van for me. And I pay a kid to bring them from the car to my cottage once a month. Are there any teenagers who would help you out for a small fee ?
