Local source for whole yellow or white corn? (dry, for making into flour)

Cornbread made with freshly ground corn is amazingly flavorful. Whole kernel dry corn has always been difficult to find - even in places like Whole Foods - but now it seems to have disappeared entirely. The last time I purchased any locally, it was at the Newton Bread and Circus on Walnut Street - yep, back before the name change. It was also possible to get it mail order from King Arthur, but alas, it is gone from their catalog and website, too.

Poking around online has resulted in a few sources, but either you have to buy at least 25 pounds or you have to pay shipping charges that far exceed the price of the corn.

Now I have a hankering for that yummy cornbread. Does anyone know of a local (Masssachusetts, southern NH, RI) source of whole dry corn? Organic would be great but I will settle for conventional if that is all that is available.

Thanks!
