    Another sourdough loaf completed

    The Rouge de Bordeaux flour did very well as a sourdough bread. The flavor is most enjoyable.

    Rouge and Ruby Lee

    I have been using Rouge de Bordeaux for some time and love the flavor. However, my recent purchase included Ruby Lee. I baked a sourdough artisan loaf recently using 30% Ruby Lee, with the remainder KA bread flour. I like the flavor of the RL the best of all Barton Springs flours: a really nutty flavor. I would give RL 5 stars.

    Great flour, high shipping price

    I’ve used your flour exclusively for years now. If you’re now open for picking up orders at the mill please let me know as shipping is so expensive

    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.

    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!!
