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 grains 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 grains--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 grain, so you get more flavor, and more nutrition.
Not only are our stone-ground organic 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.
JANIE’S FARM ORGANICS conducts field trials of many different varieties of wheat and other grains in order to select those that grow well in our corner of the Midwest, have unique flavor profiles, and mill consistently well.
Starting with our fertile organic soilsand knowledgeable farmers, we then work in partnership with professional bakers to develop a range of flours for all your baking needs.
Close collaboration from field to oven is crucial. Mill manager Jill Brockman-Cummings, mill owner and farmer Harold Wilken, and Ellen King, co-owner and head baker at Hewn Bakery, discuss the taste and performance of different flours.
We are committed to supplying you with the most delicious, nourishing, and best-performing flours you have ever used.
