“I just want to thank you for your flour.  It makes amazing breads that taste so much better than store bought flour.  I have been converted.  From now on, I only buy from you.  Thanks for opening my eyes.”

Astrid

“I just wanted to say thank you, and tell you how much I appreciate your wonderful products.  I recently purchased a Bouquet of Flours (great marketing, lol) and some extra bread flour and rye flour.  I’m a hobby baker, and I recently started learning how to make sourdough bread.  The first loaf I made with my 1847 flour was by far the best I’ve made so far.  The bread came out lovely, soft, chewy and I swear we taste notes of honey.  I can absolutely taste the quality in your products.”
