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 wheat flour is currently sourced from Maine Grains, a stone grist mill in skowhegan that sources only non-gmo and sustainably-grown grain. All rye is grown organically by Sam Mudge at Grange Corner Farm and milled fresh for every mix. Abenaki Flint Corn is grown organically and milled by Johanna Davis and Adam Nordell at Songbird Farm.
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.
Every opportunity is taken to produce a delicious and healthful product.
