We try to source all our grains from local Ontario farmers. Some grains such as Kamut, don’t grow well in our Ontario climate. Those are sourced from Western Canada. All our grains are from Canadian farms. Our farm is currently in transition from conventional to organic. Our hope is to produce certified organic grains for milling.

Our grains are always Certified Organic!
