Bird in Hand Farm

Bird in Hand Farm is an imaginary place.

There ought to be a pony around here somewhere...

Those are square foot tiles on the kitchen floor.
We like steel cut oats for breakfast, especially with blueberries.  We eat it most mornings and have been doing this for over a year.   I used to like regular oatmeal but steel cut oatmeal is so much better.  The problem is is that it can be hard to find.  McCains makes it and so does Bob's Red Mill, but both charge $3+ a pound (cue cheapskate theme music).  Occasionally, we can get it in bulk for about $2 a pound. 

I got the bright idea to look on line to buy it in bulk.  We found Honeyville Grain selling 50# for $50.  They ship anywhere in the continental US for $4.49.  We took the plunge.  

I figure we have about a year and a half's worth of oats.  Research says you can freeze them so they don't go stale.  In the freezer, they are good for up to 2 years.  I hope we still like it then...
