I buy most of my whole grains at local health food stores that sell them in bulk from dispensers (I hope you know what I mean
) and there is one supermarket that has a good natural/organic section.
Bobs Red Mill and Arrowhead Mills also sell organic prepackaged grains and legumes. Check out mySoyLoafBread-part1

I don't generally order online since I can't store large quantities and also the shipping costs bump up the prices quite a bit. Price-wise, you're probably better off exploring local sources.
I use a very early model of the KitchenAid grain mill attachment to mill flour. It looks like this
The grinding plates are adjustable, so, with experimentation, I can "crack" hard grains like hard wheat, spelt or kamut. I've never used an expensive grain mill like the one you bought, so maybe it is not suited for cracking grains. Your mill, however, will produce a much finer flour than I can using the KA grain mill attachment. This makes it versatile for all sorts of home baking. I'm envious
