How to get historical data (prices) for commodities?

Hi all,
I'm trying to get historical data for commodities. I've tried several ways, using the datafeed toolbox with Yahoo, trying to use the Bloomberg (before I found out I need to have a license). I've just started with MATLAB R2015a and don't have much experience yet. If anybody could provide a thorough guide on how to get the daily prices eg. for CK15.CBT Corn May 15 for the last 4 months let's say, that would be much appreciated.
Attached is the message I got when trying to use datafeed via Yahoo to get commodities data:
Thank you Petr

Many market data available via data providers usually require a subscription fee. Moreover, Datafeed Toolbox no longer supports Yahoo! Finance API.

Quandl offers a lot of data for free and also a nice Matlab API. Definitely worth a look.
