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 Flavor !!!

Used the Garbanzo beans in making butternut squash soup.
Soaked the beans in water over night. Added beans to the veggie broth, then made the soup. The beans are full of flavor. Will not use canned beans ever again.

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.

Sonora Flour
Debora Crosby
I can't imagine baking cookies, pies, and cakes without Sonoran Flour!

This order of flour arrived at 6:30 pm then night before Thanksgiving. I refused to start my baking before it arrived. It didn't disappoint and everyone raved about the pie crusts as well as the pies. The Sonoran wheat flour was fresh and wonderful!

Wrens Abruzzi Rye Flour
Laura Sanders
Great flavor!

This was my first time working with rye flour, and I wasn't sure how well it would work in a sourdough loaf. I was pleasantly surprised by the freshness and flavor of the Wrens Abruzzi.

Beautiful Flour

The Rouge de Bordeaux has a silky feel which I loved. The aroma while bread baking had a great spice smelling and the color of my rustic bread was a beautiful dark brown. The taste of bread was awesome. I will order again. I loved the other two flours as well.

Best Flour I Have Ever Used

I heard about Barton Springs Mill from a friend. I bake a lot of bread and wanted to try all the flours. The rye, wheat flours and the all-purpose flour are the best I have ever used. The whole grains are robust and flavorful, and the products are locally sourced. Ordering using the web site was easy and the shipment was well packaged and prompt. I will use Barton Springs Mill flour exclusively in all my future baking.
