Weatherbury Farm mills local flour — the organic grain that is milled into flour is grown on the farm. There are only a handful of farms in the country that mill local flour. There are many small mills in the country. A part (or most) of the grains they mill are grown in the northwest. (Most local groceries also sell flour milled from grains from the northwest.) Weatherbury Farm is also the only farm in the world that offers complete transparency with our Grain Tracker (a QR code on the flour bag) that takes one to information (& pictures) on our website about how and where the grain was grown.

What inspires your work?
Philosophically, it seems like the right thing to do. There should be somebody growing wheat locally to make bread. It just seems wrong that you say, ‘we’re going to rely on the western states to give us our wheat for our bread. Also our customers who might buy our flours the first time since they are healthy (certified organic) but come back because the flour tastes better.
How can people best support you or your community as we recover from the pandemic?
Consider what local flour is. It is grown locally and milled locally. And of course, purchase our healthy tasty flours and spread the word.
Are there any unique events, initiatives, sales, or opportunities at your store or community that people should be aware of?
Weatherbury Farm has a once per month on farm flour pickup. As all of our flours are milled to order, orders due 10 days prior to the pickup date. We can also ship.
Please provide any other information you want to share that these questions did not cover!
When you are buying locally, don’t forget local flour! Growing grain locally is more sustainable (& tastier) than importing grain from the northwest to grind.
