Hey Chris, i live in Brookfield, WI and the shop i go to a couple blocks from my house has it. They also have a website. its listed as Northwestern Weizen 6#. Not sure what they charge for shipping since i can walk there, but i hope this helps. If the shipping is crazy, i could pick it for you and ship it through my business where we get a much more reasonable rate on oops and fedex.
