Freshly Milled Stone Ground Goodness
Our flour is freshly stone ground in a 20″ Meadows mill and packaged to order weekly so that you receive the highest quality product we can provide.
Whole grain flour is exactly that, we put the whole grain into our mill and what comes out; the flour, the bran, and the germ is what gets packaged. The inclusion of the bran yields a coarser, more varied texture and a stronger flavor.
Bolted flour is whole grain flour that has been sifted through screens to remove larger pieces of bran. This results in a finer, more consistent texture similar to a conventional all purpose or pastry flour.
**Our grains are processed with the same equipment that processes wheat and may contain wheat.**
Why Mill to Order?
There are so many benefits to using flour that is freshly milled, with the most important being the flavor and aromatics! If you mill at home, you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about; with noticeable flavor differences in your baked goods.
Secondly, milling to order helps us to reduce food waste. From week to week, our customer orders can fluctuate and we’re able to mill and briefly store what is needed without sitting on stockpiles of aging flour (what we mill in a given week is either delivered or shipped within a day or two of milling!). While this might not be the most time efficient way to mill, our end product is exactly what we want our customers to have, flour that has been transformed from a basic ingredient to the star of whatever dish you’re baking.
Where do you start when speaking about the benefits of whole grains? We think the best place to begin is with the flavor, because let’s be honest, if it doesn’t taste good why would you want to eat it?
Like apples and many other types of produce, each grain variety has its own unique flavors. Mix and match your favorite grains as substitutions for brown rice and small pastas and you won’t be disappointed. Grain risottos, pilafs and salads are all deliciously possible!
