About Us
Farmer Ground Flour is a team of conscientious friends working together to provide our community with fresh, organic, local, stoneground flour. We are committed to leading the growth of a sustainable grain economy. To this end, we farm, mill, teach and listen—bringing together the ancient triumvirate of farmer, miller and baker.

Our system consists of several stone mills running in sequence, which is designed to gradually and gently reduce the kernels into flour. Meadows Mills in North Carolina cut the 20-inch and 30-inch granite stones. The vertical stones run at relatively slow rpms, dividing the workload between different machines to reduce heat and physical pressure.

We farm and mill in New York State—not the arid west or vast fields of the former tall-grass prairie. Because of our climate and relatively small farms, producing organic grain of milling quality is a challenge. Similar to farmers markets, mills can be levers in building a regional food system. We are motivated to help New York State farmers step out of the volatile commodity market by building long-term relationships, and providing a stable price and consistent market.
Practices
We make freshness a priority, milling our organic grains to order. Please keep your flour in a cool, dry place and be mindful of the “best by” date on the bag. To extend the life of your flour, store it refrigerated or frozen. That said, Farmer Ground wants you to have a fresh supply of local flour. We recommend that you buy our flour in small quantities that can be used pronto. For optimum flavor, please consume our products within 1-2 months of purchase.
