Surrounded by snow-capped mountains and encircled by glacier fed waters, the family farm that produces our stone ground barley starter flour is in a secluded, high latitude location in the middle of Alaska. Pure air, clean water, and long summer days pack the grain with nutrition and antioxidants.
Many of the diseases, fungi, and pests that plague lower latitude farms do not exist in our pristine, subarctic farm location. This means that there is no need for preventative pesticide spraying of our barley crops, which is common for most organic farms in lower latitudes.
Our Stone Ground Barley contains fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Your sourdough starter will love it.
