Seed source

Does anyone have a local source(central pa Harrisburg) for food plot seeds? Idealy somewhere I can buy seed by the pound.
I am looking for sorghum,sunn hemp,sunflower, Egyptian wheat, cow peas, and lab lab I would like to experiment with screening my plots.
I will not need a lot of seed because I am only planting a strip 25 feet wide and 200 yards long

If no locals sources please share online sources that will sell by the pound. Or sell a screening mix.

I would call some local feed stores like Agway to see what they carry. You should be able to get Sorghum and Sunflowers pretty easily locally. Like Bush said Deer Creek Seed offers alot of variety. I just got some sugar beet seed from them.

I will have to look for a local agway. Can think of any local off the top of my head.
The local mill will not split bags.
A lot of the places I have found online sold large bags.

The downside to buying online is the shipping can be a real killer.

I've read that Welters is good for buying small amounts of this and that. Need to call in order - no online sales. Welter Seed & Honey Co.

https://hancockseed.com/ is another place that sells smaller amounts. I bought smaller amounts of Egyptian Wheat from them before.
