There's a book called the Homebrewer's Garden that you'll want to check out. You can probably get it from your local library. It'll tell you planting times, etc. As fas as a seed supplier goes, I looked a little online and I don't know where you'll find a supplier. I think I remember seeing that you don't want the type of two row barley they use as animal feed b/c it is lower quality.

A variety called Golden Promise is used a lot in Scotland, both for malting for beer and whisky production.

You may be able to pick it up in the states
