All Purpose Flour, White, Organic 50#
A blend of hard red wheat and soft white winter wheat, with a protein content around 11%. Unlike conventional white flour, we retain the wheat germ, which is the nutritional heart of the wheat berry. The milling process is similar to our High Extraction Flour, but this flour is softer and lighter than our bread flour. With the large bran flakes removed, the tiny bran flakes (ash) create a finer texture and impart the creamy color to the flour. About half the bran content of whole-wheat flour.
About Farmer Ground Flour
WE CRAFT FLOUR FROM THE BEST GRAIN THAT NEW YORK STATE CAN GROW.
Farmer Ground Flour is a team of conscientious friends working together to provide our community with fresh, organic, local, stoneground flour. We are committed to leading the growth of a sustainable grain economy. To this end, we farm, mill, teach and listen—bringing together the ancient triumvirate of farmer, miller and baker.
Our system consists of several stone mills running in sequence, which is designed to gradually and gently reduce the kernels into flour. Meadows Mills in North Carolina cut the 20-inch and 30-inch granite stones. The vertical stones run at relatively slow rpms, dividing the workload between different machines to reduce heat and physical pressure.
We farm and mill in New York State—not the arid west or vast fields of the former tall-grass prairie. Because of our climate and relatively small farms, producing organic grain of milling quality is a challenge. Similar to farmers markets, mills can be levers in building a regional food system. We are motivated to help New York State farmers step out of the volatile commodity market by building long-term relationships, and providing a stable price and consistent market.
