Our next step: getting the mobile mill to schools and educational events!
After many years of working with heirloom wheat, we built the first known mobile mill house! Thanks to strong support from a Kickstarter campaign, we raised over $50,000. The mobile mill contains a hand-crafted stone mill. It is a functional and educational tool, focused on advocating the benefits of freshly stone milled grains and providing flour that is incomparable in taste and quality. The mobile mill enables travel to local schools, farmers markets, and educational events.
Getting the mobile mill into the community requires a lot of resources including fuel costs, a milling supervisor, and a driver!
Please join the movement and donate.
What we've done so far
Every year we host planting and harvest events. We’re on our 5th year! We have grown wheat at various locations in Healdsburg, CA including The Bishop's Ranch, Preston Farm and Winery, and Truett-Hurst Winery. We’ve also grown grain at Poncia Family Farm in Tomales, CA. In 2018 we expanded the heirloom wheat movement to Michigan, leading both planting and harvest events at Plainsong Farm in Grand Rapids, MI. Check out the CSA page for more information.
For three years we worked with students from the MLK school in Marin City, CA to learn about wheat. We developed a curriculum called Wheat Wednesdays that helps the students discover and participate in how wheat is grown, harvested, threshed, winnowed, and milled into flour which is used to bake cookies in their kitchen.
