Message From Peggy

To each of our customers we extend a heartfelt thank you. Thank you for your patronage, your testimonies and recipes, your burst bags, and all your baking experiences. We are stronger and wiser by them all.

In 1863 during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of "Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens" to be celebrated the last Thursday in November. Since then we've gathered with family and friends to celebrate all the reasons we have to be thankful, eaten lots of turkey and pie, raised a glass to continued prosperity, and heralded in the Christmas season.

Have you heard the latest from Cargill and Ardent Mills? They are entering the sprouted wheat flour business on a massive scale. Large malting houses (beer makers) are sprouting and roasting conventional wheat for them. Their plan will certainly make sprouted flour and baked goods less expensive, but at what cost? Sprouted grains laced with pesticides, artificial fertilizers, genetically modified, and processed? I'll leave it at that.

We continue to take the full four days that are necessary to ensure our organic grains and legumes sprout to the point that all the benefits are recognized. Then we slowly dry them at low temps and stone grind them into 100% whole grain flours. I will not compromise this process. And we still fill orders from freshly milled grains.

May your Thanksgiving be a celebration of life, love, liberty, and thanks for all. This is our wish for you. 

"Peace, love, and sprouted flour power, y'all!"
