I believe it was $4.89 last time I bought some. I've never had any problems with it.

The Wharton Bucees corn comes from a local feed supply out of El Campo.

Same here, $5 something a bag usually. Zero issues. Also like the fact that they're plastic so when it's raining I can drive 1/2 way across Texas with bags in the bed and not worry about it.

Got this from their website when I was wanting to call and ask how much corn was...

Why are your store phone numbers unlisted?

A: This is not a decision we made lightly. We previously had phones in the stores which were answered by the cashiers. When cashiers were on the phone instead of waiting on customers, this made the customers angry, so we thought it would be better to direct comments and questions to the website. We have found this also helps us be more consistent and accurate in answering questions and addressing concerns.


I’m also in the I love the beaver group. And buy all my corn from them

I was there today and they had plenty. Bucees in El Campo does as well.

FWIW bucees corn is bagged by United Ag in El Campo. United Ag has a very nice hardware/general store off of the 1162 exit to your right if going southbound on 59. They always have corn if you are thru there before 6 and they'll load it for you by the bag or pallet. Ph 979 543 6284

This has been the case for years. Folks ask for the price of corn at Buccees on here all the time because of it and folks usually help each other out. No big deal.

Good prices on good corn and never had an issue with them. If I have room in the bed, I stop, otherwise I buy from a feedstore in Angelo after unpacking....They have a price pretty close.

It's about the same. Both places have it packaged at Leopold Grain in Nada, Tx. just north of El Campo. You can go by the mill and buy direct from them.

This was true but pretty sure United Ag has their own bagging plant now.

I'll confirm on price tomorrow and post, I generally buy at United Ag so they can load with a forklift and I get rebates there.

Never had bad corn at Bucee's. They usually buy from El Campo or Leopold's in Nada, who make good corn

I heard Bucee's won't load pallets anymore as of last week. Buddy went and had to load 50 bags himself.

Liability they say

Just to clear a few things up, Yes United Ag, the big coop in El Campo, has it's own bagging plant, and own deer corn, High Caliber, in the green bags. They do sell to Bucees, but not all Bucees, and not the same ones all the time. Bucees, uses a least cost supplier, so you might see different bag at the same Bucees from time to time depending on who wants their business the most. But their are alot of local bagging plants now so prices in the area have to stay competitive, whether you're buying it at Bucees or the local feed store, either way you're supporting the local farmer and that's all that really matters. However, I could be slightly partial to the green bags, so that's what I'd buy.
