Whole dried corn (for grinding into meal or flour) in the Boston area

Can anyone suggest a retail store in the Boston area that sells whole dried corn? Organic would be nice but I will settle for regular if need be. This is the kind of corn you grind into cornmeal and use in baking, not popcorn, dried sweet corn, or hominy.

If you have ever ground your own cornmeal you know how much more flavor it has compared to what you can buy at the supermarket. Years ago I used to find whole dried corn at some (but not all) Bread and Circus locations. (Yes it was before they got bought by Whole Foods.) The last time I bought some, it was mail order. Now even that option seems to have disappeared. Both King Arthur Flour and Bob's Red Mill appear to have dropped whole grain corn from their websites. Googling does turn up a few sources, but some only sell in very large quantities and the ones that do sell 3 or 5 pound bags have shipping costs that far exceed the price of the corn. Besides which, it would be so nice to buy in small quantities for freshness and to support local business.

Thanks!
