I just go to a corn shop in lofthouse, as theres not one in leeds.....I buy a few bags to last me approx. 4 - 6 weeks, plus my grit, minerals etc.

if it could buy in bulk with a local fancier I would, but they are all too tight to spend more than a tenner at a time......ive heard a place called ss seeds have pretty decent corn, at a fair price.

Because it looks like we are going to be in frogland over the winter and early 2017 - we are buying enough corn of different sorts to last us until around March.

My wife is going back to the UK in a couple of weeks time and she will bring it all back in our trailer. Along with 16 widowhood nest boxes, bowls, V perches etc etc and 16 full sheets of 15 mm marine ply for our new racing loft.

got to think if mice can get into it, I once bought about 20 bags and stored it in the garage.......mice didn't get to it but I was always concerned in case they did, after all they can squeeze through a very small hole.
