Polenta, Yellow, Organic 2#
Farmer Ground corn products are never de-germinated-the natural oils, nutrients and rich flavor of the grain are retained.The flavor is incomparable to industrial corn products, which often taste stale and starchy. Because we produce and distribute flour close to the source of our grain, we create a vibrant, fresh product. Our polenta is a medium grind: larger than quick-cook grits and smaller than extra-coarse grits. Complex and rich in both taste and appearance.
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.
