Brought to the Pima people in the early 1700s by the Spanish Jesuit Missionary Padre Eusebio Kino, the Akimel O'Odham planted the Kalvash/Garbanzo Beans as a winter crop from November to February, and harvested the crop in May and June.

Today, Ramona Farms brings back the tradition of growing the Kalvash on the very same fields farmed by their ancestors along the Keli Akimel (Old Man River). Garbanzo beans are delicious in many culinary applications. We will be experimenting with milling chickpea flour. Stay tuned!

At the Mill, while our focus has been on Texas farmers, we are making efforts to engage/employ/purchase products from indigenous farmers and farmers of color. In our search, we discovered Ramona’s American Indian Foods, a Native American (Akimel O’Odham) business within the Gila River Reservation near Sacaton, Arizona.  Ramona and her husband Terry Button, began farming on her parents' original ten acre lot in 1974.  Read more about their story and land practices here: ramonafarms.com

excellent chickpeas, high level of flavor and quality

Good stuff

Very delicious chickpeas. Full flavor, not muted like the canned product. There is a bit more work involved, like soaking and then boiling for a while, but if you want good taste, then it's worth the extra effort. Makes great hummus and chickpea salad. Also, because it's dried, it stores very well. Would definitely recommend.

Easier than I expected!

I’m no chef, but I found cooking these so easy using an overnight-soak method. Tasty, and I don’t have to wonder about whatever that goop in the can is (it foams when you rinse canned chickpeas. Ugh). Highly recommended.

Excellent Einkorn Berries & Great Customer Service!

We live locally in Austin and wanted to pick up some Einkorn berries (we make sourdough Einkorn bread and love it) and customer service was quick to reply and get my order ready for pickup! Very friendly and helpful. Excellent wheat berries without hulls (we’ve had an issue buying from other companies where the hills were still intact on a lot of the berries. We love Barton Springs Mill!

Nice surprise

The Bloody Butcher corn meal I purchased arrived neatly packaged and ready to use. It mixed well with my corn bread recipe and it turned out smooth, rich texture and delicious. I'd definitely buy it again.

mmmmm......grits

very satisfied with these grits.....plain and simple.....

Love white wheat berries!

Loving the new Big Country white wheat berries from Barton Springs Mills! It has been 20+ yrs since I had access to and used white wheat for baking, I had forgotten the beauty of the flour. Thank you!

Beautiful Grain!!

Besides being beautiful, my sourdough starter couldn’t be happier. Have already made bread, and it is super complex and smells like toasty heaven. The best part is the heritage and organic stewardship, which we all need more of in our current mono-culture world. Thanks Barton Springs for all your hard work on this one!!
