I have bought truck loads from them for under a $100. The last load I got was a mix of cedar, pine, ash and oak. All I could fit on my truck for $25 and I got some of the most beautiful cedar I've ever seen.
Maybe I need to move My local sawmill sell everything & even very small off cuts seem to command a premium price, use to be quite reasonable & there were some bargins to be had but then about 2 years ago they started to sell on places like ebay & prices seem to have shot up, still cheaper than buying timber planned & thicknessed to size though. Been looking at ways to try & collect/harvest & dry my own timber recently, working towards building something like a solar kiln for drying
