During this moment in history when there is a shortage of national flour brands on the grocery shelves, it is an amazing time to learn about the smaller wheat growers and to try their flour. Below is a Flour and Grain Resource Guide to Upper Midwest growers, millers, and some of the bakeries who use them. I have personally baked with Baker’s Field and Sunrise Mill flours and I’m excited to try many of the others.
For more information about the benefits of baking with flour from small scale growers, both from a personal health and for the health of our planet visit the Artisan Grain Collaborative website. In these strange times, this is a moment for us to change the way we eat and we may end up supporting our farmers at the same time.
