It's been a banner year for Texas heirloom grains and corn, and you'll be able to taste the difference immediately. Flours that lend a perfect crispness to your waffles, a bit of chew to your pizzas. A hint of toothsome crunch to your almond cake, courtesy of some Hickory King cornmeal. A bread you could swear included cinnamon and molasses, because that's the aroma of Rouge de Bordeaux straight from the field.
In 2016, Barton Springs Mill set out to bring authentic heritage and landrace grains and corn to our fellow Texans. We work with farmers across the state, all exceptional at their craft, to grow organic crops using the same strains of seeds planted here in Texas in the early 1900s. (We've got the farming chops of Henry Martens in Tokio, TX, to thank for those gorgeous crops above.)
Most every day of the week, the mill is running, churning eight varieties of wheat, five varieties of corn, two varieties of rice and rye, and spelt for Texans who prize the nuances of taste, texture, and performance found only in heritage crops.
If you don’t know what great great grandpa's grains taste like, come give it a try. Visit us at the mill, take a baking class, eat at the restaurants cooking with our products, talk with one of our staff to find out the best starter flour for you. There’s a big world beyond bleached white flour and GMO corn, and you are going to love it.
It was such a relief to switch to this flour after only using flour from the grocery store to make bread. Better gluten formation, a smoother dough and a much tastier end product. I love this flour!

WOW! I was not prepared for how great these were going to be and I was pleasantly surprised! So much flavor and texture even in just a basic recipe. I cannot wait to eat these again.
looking forward to baking with it!
Even if the recipe is a flop the flour makes everything taste better. I recently used the Sonoran for pasta and the noodles were so tasty on their own they were perfect with or without sauce. <3
Wonderful flour. From a place close by. That’s important to me
I used it in a Bon appetite strawberry snacking cake recipe and it looked pretty and tasted amazing, also added some to my sourdough, deliciousness. Can’t wait to try In other recipes.
Bloody Butcher Red Corn Grits & Polenta
Great product and glad it was local. Love making bread with this stuff!
Easy to prepare and an excellent flavor.
I love y’all’s products and service! The flours are amazing and the depth of flavor they add to the breads I make is absolutely amazing!!! I get up looking forward to my toast every morning!!! Thank y’all so much!!!!
First time I’ve used grits. I used them as a layer in a casserole recipe I created. It was great. Even the kids liked it.
Mills into beautiful cornmeal, and nixtamalizes into hominy and grits easily. Tortillas are a beautiful light green, wonderful slightly nutty taste. If you haven't tried making all of these things homemade, and I hadn't before COVID-19, then you're in for a real treat with this corn. Worth the effort, especially with corn as beautiful and tasty as this.
TAM 105 Wheat
Loving my flours
fast shipping, amazing products!
I just made buttermilk pancakes with your TAM 105 Wheat flour and I got raves from my family. I've baked with it and had excellent results but the pancakes were the best ever.
This has been really active yeast. It goes so well with the other products from Barton Springs.
Always works to revive a starter pulled out of the fridge
I have not baked in a while but the Primo Red Blend flour made it easy! Everything worked and tastes great! Thanks, Mr. Brown!!
I could not find flour locally and I was fortunate to find out about your mill in a magazine article. I love it! Reasonably price along with quick shipping along with the fact I’m supporting a Texas business is more than I could ask for. I will be buying from you regularly from now on.
Made sourdough with the Rouge de Bordeaux this week and love the flavor - a slight sweetness and delicious nuttiness. Developed a good gluten structure and rose well.
They cornmeal is amazing!! It adds so much to my sourdough and makes the very best cornbread!
Excellent service and quality per the usual!

Quality flour and fast delivery!
All-Purpose Primo 'Red Blend'
What a difference these fresh milled and ground products have made in my finished baked goods! Can’t believe I’ve been settled for lesser quality flours in years past. Thank you!
Like many, I suppose, I’ve recently discovered the joy of baking bread...and cakes...and cookies...oh goodness, I need to get out of the house😂 I am no expert, but I was fortunate to discover BSM and now I feel so confident in my growing skills. But most importantly, their customer service is fantastic! Thank you BSM!
Lawd, this is GOOD..............!!! I am in love, super perfect and I’m on my second shipment of it, using it in tons of sourdough recipes! Local flours. Great taste. Fast shipping. Perfection.
WOW!!!!!!!! Hey, Texans, this is the best spelt, been adding it to sourdough bread recipes as well as my starter and it is kick ass, never buying from any other mill if I can help it!
This is super tasty, very awesome to use in sourdough recipes- just an added local Texas piece of heaven!
