    Learning about the older varieties of grains

    I already adore Bloody Butcher cornmeal, and look forward to making finer cornbread with this fine mix. But I can't really bake until the heat waves are past. I Plan to make biscuits and rolls with the Purple Straw Flour, this Fall. I love the idea of nutty flavor. Can't wait to try it out if there isn't a heat wave in Sept. I am looking up recipes for Polenta with cream mushrooms.

    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!!
