“Even though I’d heard it said for many years, it wasn’t until we grew and milled some Hickory King corn, using a small hand mill, that I tasted and so knew the difference. I ran all over town telling people, ‘There really is a difference!’ That winter I bought a Meadows stone mill, and we started milling our own,” says Laura.

Our Hickory King corn is USDA-certified organic. The white cornmeal is great for cornbread or corn muffins, and the grits are well-loved.

Hazlet Rye Flour

$7.99

Hazlet Rye

When I looked up rye in my southern cookbooks, the sole entry was for Rye Whiskey! None of my family cookbooks have a recipe for rye bread, though I do have several mash bills for rye whiskey.

Yet, I know home cooks and bakers will want to try rye bread. This variety, Hazlet, was recommended to us last September, 2019, at the Southeastern Grain Gathering in Lexington, Ky. We planted it on transitional organic ground soon thereafter, harvested it in July, and mill it in small batches for our customers.

The grain gathering was an excellent event, one which brought together farmers, bakers, distillers, millers, and academics to figure out how to form an artisian food chain for small grains. So join the fun, and bake some rye bread. Let us know how it goes…

And, by the way, many mash bills for Bourbon Whiskey call for 70% corn and 30% rye. Wildcat Willy’s 1833 bourbon is made with four grains. Because it is bourbon, it is 60% corn…

Turkey Red Wheat Flour

$7.99

Turkey Red wheat was first introduced in Kansas by Mennonite farmers in the mid-1800s, from what is now Ukraine.

Our Turkey Red wheat berries are stone milled, and the flour is whole grain. By using a stone mill we’re able to retain the nutritional content available in the wheat berry. Our resident artisan bread baker uses this flour in his naturally-leavened, hand-mixed loaves. He believes using a sourdough “mother” really helps the natural flavors (rich and earthy, slightly caramelized) of the wheat shine.

Each bag of flour weighs 1.30 pounds and contains 5 cups.

*Note: Since this flour contains wheat germ and wheat germ is an oil, this flour will not keep for as long as standard commercially-milled white flour. Keep your flour in airtight container and store it in the freezer.

Buckwheat Flour

$7.99

A grain which is allowed during the maintenance phase of low-carbohydrate diets, buckwheat is my go-to grain when I’m trying to manage my husband’s diet. It is a low-glycemic, high protein, and packed with vitamins. Indeed, buckwheat is a “pseudocereal,” much like quinoa.

Not only is it preferable for our diet, but it tastes good. Learn to cook this grain, and everyone will be happy.
