Wheat prices jump on Montana drought news

“Wal-Mart Wheat” has more than doubled in price

UPDATE:  A quick call to the Amish (yes, they have phones and answer them) confirms that they have 50 lbs of red hard winter wheat for $25.95

I notice this morning that the “Wal-Mart Wheat” has more than doubled in price in the past month or so.  We usually buy wheat by the 50 lb. bag from the Amish.  The last purchase we paid $27.50 for 50 lbs.  The Wal-Mart Wheat (Augason Farms Emergency Food Hard Red Wheat) is currently selling at $36.99 for 26 lb.

A recent jump in spring wheat payments have been a light at the end of a tunnel for grain farmers, except in northeast Montana, where it’s become a drought-driven train.
