    Quanah Flour

    Really nice. Mixed with Barton's Marquis and followed Barton's video instructions for simple bread. Turned out great and great taste too!


    I am vegan and have used the Quanah flour to make buttery pan de mie sandwich bread, heavenly sourdough burger buns, pillowy pizza crust, and tortillas that had a warm, nutty flavor. I will definitely be buying this again and again!

    Barton Springs Mill Quanah Flour

    Love what this does to a loaf of sourdough bread. Has such yummy flavor. and texture. One of my all time favorite flours

    Amazing Flavor

    Quanah was such a wonderful surprise. The flavor is rich and buttery/nutty. I made sourdough focaccia and it handled beautifully, with a great rise. I also made flatbreads --was a great flavor addition to a sandwich.

    I love all the flour I have ordered from you.

    The Quanah is a great bread flour. I made a lovely loaf of bread. Later, because I wanted to have bread quickly, I made a loaf of batter bread. Even though I did not knead it, so the gluten was undeveloped, the bread rose beautifully. And the flavor is delicious. Quanah is definitely on my list of favorites.

    Whole Berry Bundle
    April Soncrant

    I am a new owner of a mill and am milling my own flour for the first time. This is so much fun, and the Barton Springs grains are just wonderful. Everything about my order was great, from the customer service, quick shipping, excellent notifications, right to the product itself. Fresh and flavorful. I am very pleased.

    Beautiful and Delicious

    I use the Sonora Wheat Berries for all my non-yeast baking. Muffins, pancakes and more. I love the golden color and flavor of this wheat. My order was packaged well and the wheat is very clean and ready to mill.

    Einkorn Flour

    Made Einkorn Flour and White Cornmeal pancakes. Great taste. To hot to bake anything this time of year. Trying some grits for evening meal, topped with eggs. Thank you for service and answering questions about grind on corn.


    I love spelt, especially Barton Springs’ spelt. It is very clean, and they ship it so fast. I made banana bread recently, and knowing that spelt is a complete protein, along with fruit, nuts, butter and eggs, you’ve got all the food groups in a delicious slice.
