I don't think there are any yet, but he told me he was working on that when I went there last year. They were working on getting plastic bags so that it could be sold in stores, most likely at a mark up though - Maybe $6-7 instead. Still cheap though.

I hope if that does happen, we're still able to pick it up right from the source for $3.50.
I just picked up a dozen bags today. :yahoo: Apparently Carl is looking to get some sort of stitching machine to seal plastic bags. Says he's never been busier.

I met him last Saturday at 11am, not sure if he came in just for me, or if he was working. He seems very flexible.

Carl called me back. He's got a guy picking up a ton at noon, then I'm picking up ~1500 lbs at 1:00pm Saturday.

Sounded like a real nice guy over the phone.

:cool:

Necro-thread revival:

Anyone been yet this year?
Does Carl have plenty in stock?
Thinking of getting a pallet this year, as my local HD does not sell Milo anymore.

By the way, that pallet price of $175 is the same as the per-bag price of $3.50 per bag. (50 bags on a pallet...)

Kind of neat to see from this revived thread that the price is unchanged since 2013 - still $3.50 per bag, and bags are still 40 pounds each...

I've been buying it by making an annual road trip / pilgrimage to the "factory" in Quincy, MA. Each year, I've brought back between 35 and 45 bags in my Ford Expedition, depending upon my needs for the year and sharing plans. As mentioned above, the price is $3.50/bag, which works out to $175 for a pallet of 50 bags (2000 pounds). Definitely worth the trip compared to paying for Milorganite at big box store prices.

A few threads with more information, including one with a video and another with an annotated satellite image are below. Search on the site will turn up even more...

Good to know if I’m going to be driving through the area can plan ahead.

Not sure I’d drive south through Boston for it but if I’m the area could pick up a bunch of bags.

Finally/Hopefully getting a chance to head out there Wednesday.
The milo shortage of 2019 is putting my lawn into dormancy for the first time in about 6-8 years.

Call the day before planning to go. Last time I called, about two weeks ago, they were all out and didn’t know when they would next be bagging.

I still haven’t picked up my 2019 supply and haven’t been able to apply any for about two months. Lawn is showing it, despite my having substituted some other fertilizer.
