Sirvinta Wheat Flour. 2 lb bag.
This Estonian wheat variety made it's debut in Maine as a homestead grain championed by western Maine's seed saving folk hero Will Bonsall. The Maine Grain Alliance adopted Sirvinta as part of it's rare seed grow out project, and it is now grown on hundreds of acres and sought after by bakers across New England. This batch of flour reflects the cold wet spring of 2019, and is a lower protein wheat. It makes great bread when blended with an all purpose or white bread flour, and can make a good loaf of bread on it's own, though it needs gentle handling and extra time. It also makes delicious quick breads, pancakes and muffins.
Rye Flour. 2 lb bag.
Favored by northern climate farmers and artisan bread bakers, rye survives cold winters & frost heaves and is renowned for the terrific flavor it adds to sourdough breads. Rye flour also adds flavor to quick breads and pancakes and holds its own in cookies and brownies. This batch of rye was grown as a cover crop by Freedom, Maine's South Paw farm, custom harvested by Unity's Songbird Farm, seed cleaned by Rusted Rooster farm in Parkman and then stone milled at Songbird Farm. When you bake with this rye you can think about the resilience of the grain and the interdependence of Maine's small farm community.
