THE MILL AT JANIE’S FARM IS A NATURAL EXTENSION OF JANIE’S FARM ORGANICS. WE HAVE BEEN GROWING CERTIFIED ORGANIC GRAINS FOR OVER 15 YEARS, AND ARE NOW MILLING THE GRAINS WE GROW, AS WELL AS THOSE GROWN BY OUR ORGANIC FARMER NEIGHBORS.

  sTONE MILLING PRESERVES FLAVOR AND NUTRITION   Our mill was custom-made especially for us by Engsko, a Danish company that has been in the milling business for over a century.  Although it's brand new, this is the most ancient type of mill, feeding whole grain kernels between stationary and rotating mill stones. We carefully monitor the temperature of the stones to ensure that they stay cool and preserve all the nutrition of the whole kernel--including the bran and germ, with all of their essential proteins, oils, vitamins, and minerals. Even our sifted flours contain 70-90% of the whole kernel, so you get more flavor, and more nutrition.

  Artisanal Flavors   Not only are our stone-ground, organic, whole-kernel flours nutritionally superior, they taste better! The different wheat varieties we grow produce unique flavor profiles (described under "Our Flours" below) that range from deep and earthy to light and creamy.  We work with both heritage and hybrid varieties of wheat, rye, oats, and corn.  The grains and flours we offer vary seasonally, so please contact us if you are looking for something in particular.

  Wheat is "the staff of life"  for Western civilization, and  The Mill at Janie's Farm  delivers the full nutritional profile contained in every kernel. This is why we call our flours  "whole kernel"  instead of whole wheat, since many whole wheat flours have had the life, taste, and nutrition processed out of them by high-speed roller mills.

We recommend you purchase fresh-ground flour in small amounts, store it in a cool, dry place, and use within a few weeks of ordering. You may freeze the flour for up to 3 months, but the flavor and nutrition will be best if you use it as soon after milling as possible.
