Hayden Flour Mills
Why stone milling?
Stone milling is an old world process where the grain is sheared into flour by rotating stones. This low-temperature process preserves the integrity and nutrition of the the whole grain. Even our more finely sifted flours have part of the whole grain in them. This means that our finely milled, Type 00 flour, is nutritionally similar to whole wheat flour!
Our flours are minimally processed; this means no bleach and no additives. However, this also means that our flours have natural oils and are best kept in the freezer to preserve their freshness.
Are your grains genetically modified (gmo)?
We don’t grow or sell any GMO products. And fortunately, there is no GMO wheat commercially available for production or sale in North America at this time. Our corn products are certified non-GMO.
Are your grains Organic? Pesticide free?
All of our heritage wheats are grown without the use of pesticides. Our grains are not certified organic but they are grown sustainably and without the use of chemicals.
