Default Lime Prices

I learned something about lime yesterday from a faithful reader of my site who happens to be a farmer. Our local ag service runs around $88 a ton. I've seen other discussions in the forums about it and I think the cheapest I seen was around $40 a ton. Well turns out you can buy the same lime straight from the quarry, so I called my local quarry and I can get it for $3 a ton. THAT'S RIGHT $3 A TON !!!! Now that really helps a joe smoe like me at getting into food plots.

You think that lime price was bad, at least you could get around it by going to the quarry directly. Wait till you try to buy fertilizer!!!! It's gone through the roof!

I spent about $80 on fertilizer. That was 250lbs. worth. I didn't think that was bad.
