Farmer Ground Flour is the shared project of millers Greg Russo and Neal Johnston, and organic farmer Thor Oechsner. We began milling flour in 2009 from the grain that we grow in New York's Finger Lakes region. Through a custom series of beautiful pink granite millstones, our process creates astonishingly fresh and vibrant flour.
A whole grain is the entire seed of a plant. This seed or kernel is composed of endosperm, germ and bran. We designed our milling process to retain the integrity of these three parts and impart the nutrition of the whole grain—allowing the natural nutrients, fibers, oils and flavors to speak for themselves. We think they speak loudly.
