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.
I am very happy with the flours I purchased from Barton Springs Mill
Amazing color and flavor.
Makes great sourdough bread
Very good flavor and produced bread with an excellent texture.
All-Purpose Standard 'Red Blend'
To be able to purchase "living" flour. You can literally smell the goodness in this flour. Rises beautifully and makes a toothy, satisfying loaf. Just know this is contributing to health and wellness. I love baking and sharing the goodness of your flour products.
I ordered from Barton Springs Mill for the first time recently, and I'm so glad I did! Having gotten into ancient and heritage/landrace wheat flours in the last several months, I was excited to find a mill in Texas that offers these flours - so much more healthy for you than modern wheat. I baked a loaf of sourdough using my starter and the Red Fife 00, Ruby Lee whole wheat, and a small amount of dark rye (the rye was from another source.) The smell of the resulting levain was incredible and like none of the levains I'd created to-date. I smelled notes of cinnamon, my husband and daughter smelled honey. The finished bread retained a hint of those overtones - a slight smell and taste of cinnamon and honey, and the crumb was light and moist with plenty of spring and elasticity to accommodate a nice amount of air pockets. The crust was crunchy, and the colors of that crackly crust...amazing! I tell you, I'm hooked on baking with Barton Springs flours.
I just made the best sourdough bread I have ever made, or eaten, with your fabulous Rouge de Bordeaux whole wheat flour. I can’t say enough about how wonderful it is, sweet, nutty, cinnamon, fabulous oven spring, etc etc. Thank you!
This flour works well for any recipe. I’m a novice baker and everything I’ve made from bread to biscuits to pies and brownies have come out super. So happy to have found a trusted source for flour and grits.
A GAME-CHANGER for my bread
Easy to give.
This hat is well made and we'll designed. Super happy with my purchase. Support local
very satisfied with the flavor of this flour. I am using it for pizza I previously used tm105 while that flour is good, Rouge de Bordeaux has a more desirable flavor for the pizza we are making,
Red Fife ‘00’ flour makes lovely bread. It doesn’t go well with oregano because of its strong taste, but the cinnamon taste makes for great cinnamon toast.
Ordering was easy, shipping quick, flour is outstanding, slowly replacing my bread recipes with all these wonderful choices from Barton Springs Mill. What a gem.
I have been using barton springs mill flour exclusively for about a month. I am amazed at the glamour flavor and texture
I have been regularly ordering TAM 105 for my sourdough cottage food business and it is perfect every time. Barton Springs Mill ships promptly, the packaging is never damaged and I love being able to give my business to a local TX mill and to be able to share their product with my customers!
All-Purpose Primo 'Red Blend'
For years I’ve ordered my grits from South Carolina. No more! These were tasty and creamy but curse enough to have some texture. Love!
I used the AP Primo Red blend to make a loaf of bread in my bread maker. It came out soft and slightly chewy.
A great whole wheat flour!
Doughs made with this flour handle very nicely and the spicy cinnamon aromatic notes are marvelous
This is my favorite wheat flour (So far). I have made both pasta and bread with it, and it gives them an unbelievable flavor and tenderness. I am so enjoying your mills products, the help me take my baking and cooking to a new level.
Really different from the mass produced stuff.
Very good quality! I will most definitely order again.
The sourdough loaves I made with Rouge de Bordeaux flour and a small amount of rye were probably the best I have ever made! Excited to make more today. It rose well, it is a beautiful bread and is absolutely delicious.
I have used it for a weekend sourdough loaf and Sourdough discard biscuits, great flavor!
Added to my pizza dough recipe, which is now extra yummy!
Great Fresh milled for cornbread, makes great nixtamal For tortillas, also added To breads for a little extra flavor and crunch. Great color and flavor.
Very flavorful, used for cornbread
I've been experimenting with sourdough again, and my best tasting loaves so far have been 15% Rouge de Bordeaux, 5% dark rye, 80% high protein bread flour with a sesame coating. Soooo delicious. Rouge de Bordeaux flour gives the bread a richness, an almost fruity aroma that's a knock-out. All the BSM flours I've used have really taken my loaves up a level.
Dog the flour smells so fuckin good. Y'all really are the best bet for your money in TX
I have enjoyed the flavor of the product which is a nice addition to my sourdough bread and would purchase it again.
