Dave is growing his own grains, which are ground into flour for use in his breads. He grows both spring red wheat and rye. The wheat that he is growing is a Durham Red Wheat, which is a hard wheat, high in protein and excellent for his hearty country loaves. We are using a locally grown spelt as well for a lower gluten option. All of our flours are milled locally as well and the flour is untreated, unbleached and traditional. The flours are available for sale in the store in five and ten pound bags.
