We are reaching out to our wholesale customers throughout Texas and asking that y’all collaborate with Barton Springs Mill to support #BakersAgainstRacism. This is a worldwide virtual bake sale, occurring on June 20th. We fully support the initiative, and want to contribute, but we needed more time to do so. With the original organizers’ blessing, we have decided to propel the momentum, and hold another event on July 11th, specific to Texas bakers!
Barton Springs Mill will be donating
* ONE TON OF FLOUR *
to y’all, so you may hold your own individual virtual bake sales on July 11th!
By accepting a flour donation from BSM, you must agree to donate 100% of your virtual bake sale profits to the movement. As a business, you may choose any organization that contributes to putting an end to racism, and the unjust treatment of Black people in America. It is our hope that this collaborative effort will assist in funneling donation profits to as many community organizations across Texas as possible, while maximizing local financial support to the movement.
Sounds dope, right?

Flour Choices for #TexanBakersAgainstRacism Donation:
Title says it all. Really can’t go wrong with the grains Barton Springs offers. However I’m not the biggest fan of the paper bags they come in. They just feel kind of flimsy, like to the point where I’m almost concerned the bag will break. I recommend moving them to another container. Great wheat berries tho!
Stone ground flour from Barton Springs Mill makes amazing sourdough bread
I purchased several stone ground heritage grain flour from Barton Springs Mill and tried multiple Ken Forkish bread loaf recipes , from his black bread to an emmer loaf. The breads turned out amazing and I know the flour made all the difference. I have plenty more loaves to make and I’m truly happy having my stash of flour from Barton Springs mill. I highly recommend giving these heritage grains a try. A very happy customer from Texas - who is delighted to purchase local .
