This premium quality flour is milled from a blend of dark northern spring wheat. It is milled at a low temperature to preserve the flavor of the wheat. The high gluten content gives extra elasticity to the dough, helping it rise and keep its shape. It also gives the final product a chewy texture. Primarily used to make artisan hearth breads, it can also be used to blend with lower gluten flours such as rye or buckwheat.
Shepherd's Grain specializes in working with over 60 growers and farmers in the Pacific Northwest, Southern Alberta and Southern California who believe in using "sustainable agriculture" to preserve and nourish the land that they farm. Two sustainable agriculture methods in particular that Shepherd's Grain farmers use is that of no-till and direct seed. Both of these methods conserve the soil, reduce erosion and increase tilth and fertility of the soil. To learn more about these methods, click here.
