Which is why you don't buy from those places unless they're willing to do freight shipping. When you buy a bag from an online shop, it needs to be shipped twice, and you're paying for both of those, and generally you're paying shipping per bag, not combined freight.
Buy from a malting supplier, and buy in bulk. If you buy 4+ bags, I bet Country Malting can get it to your house for less than $1/lb.
