    I have been using bag rock salt and just got a spreader to handle bulk so now I need to know where to buy it. We are in the Patchogue area and would like someone close by.
    Any help would be appreciated, Thanks

    If your a legit company, Bissett nursery has salt sand which is a 20% salt ratio. Not sure if they sell salt but would assume so.

    Thanks for the suggestion but I have already checked with bissett and the only have salt sand and I'm looking for bulk salt closer supplier to me. So far the two closest are West Babylon to the west and Riverhead to the east. I get my salt sand from GTS in Holbrook because I like their salt sand better than Bissett's.

    If your in a pinch and your customer base is in E.H. you may want to try Don Mahoney. He usually keeps a stock pile for his own accounts/trucks.

    Thanks, I have enough for now but am always looking for options. I had actually just contacted NuGreen the other day.
