Pardon a noob - what's with the forklift? Do you need a 1 ton truck for the initial pickup?

I can always meet up with a truck to pull off my bags and help with others. I work nights so most days in the morning are good for me. I don't have the best back so handling a whole pallet of grain is out of the question but I can help. I don't know where the best place to purchase grain is in this area but it has been done before. Maybe someone who has done this in this area can educate us and move on with the logistics from there. Seems to me to be a process of contacting the seller, picking it up, and then distributing it and collecting money at a convenient location.

The cheapest shipping method is by pallet... in order to unload a pallet from the truck you either need to have a dock with a pallet jack or without a dock someone would need a forklift.

Once it's on the ground you would only need a 1 ton truck if you were carrying 1 ton of grain home with you.

In a couple of weeks I will post a new sign up sheet and start a new thread for a New England Group Grain Buy Round #2. I have to wait untill the end of February to start this round and wont be able to receive the order until the beginning of March. I am also going to have to limit this buy to 2 pallets so if you are interested get in early. I suspect this will fill up quickly. The location will be the same as last time in Bedford, NH.

Frank. I am definitely in and your timing works perfect for me. As promised I will donate a bag to you for all of your help this time and last.

I have worked with the Irishman on the last grain buy and bought some other kegs and items from him no problems. On that note, Donavan, I can bring your grain down again. I am planning on grabbing my Inlaws 2500 this time as my Pilot was not happy with the 3/4 pallet of grain I carried down 95 the last time.

I am good for 6 bags. Maybe more. Thanks.

Adam

I'm in as well, looks like I'll have to be quick on the spreadsheet with all the interest that's been building.

The last group buy was the first one I've participated in and it went really well, thanks so much to everyone that organized it.

Don't be a troll about it.
