All breads are naturally leavened and slowly fermented to unlock the full flavor and health benefits of the delicious sustainably-grown grain we are fortunate to have in Maine, thanks to an increasing number of growers and millers.
All grain is currently sourced from Maine Grains, a stone grist mill in skowhegan that sources only non-gmo and sustainably-grown grain, or is purchased directly from farmers for in-house milling.
Stone milling slowly grinds grain at a cool temperature, preserving the natural oils and mineral content of the grain and resulting in a more nutrient-dense and flavorful flour.
Natural leavening and slow fermentation break down starches and gluten into amino acids, making bread more nutritious and digestible, with an excellent keeping quality.
