Can I Grind My Own Flour in Bulk?

Can I Grind My Own Flour in Bulk?

Q: I've been reading about grinding your own wheat and other grains to make flour using a Vitamix and other grinders. My question is: Can I grind in bulk and store it? How long is the shelf life? I make Indian wheat breads (roti) at home everyday. But I don't trust store bought flour and have been thinking of grinding my own. 

I also don't know which kind of wheat to use or where to buy it. Bread is our main food and would be really happy if I can give my kids pure wheat breads.
