Whole Wheat Flour

I have found a local source for whole wheat flour - a "Country Store" near
me.  So I bought 25lb. of it.

But now I have heard that I should freeze it if I plan to keep it a "while"
or it will start to taste "old".

Can anyone help me with this?  What does it mean to start tasting "old" and
how long does it take for this to happen?  That is, how long can I keep it
in just a cool, dark air-tight container without freezing it?  It is going
to be pretty hard to freeze 25lb. of flour.
