Why we love it

Pastry flour is basically flour royalty. Culled from soft white wheat and ground to extra-fineness, it’s lower in protein, which means it’s almost vital in making anything puffy, light, or crumbly. Pie crusts? Perfect. Scones? Flawless while barely lifting a finger. The only thing left is to bow.

How it does good

Going back to basics to transform local farming

Grain is a staple in many diets, so it’s no surprise that modern manufacturing expanded to make production bigger and faster, often at the expense of small farmers and their communities. Maine Grains is out to change all that, putting chemical-free farming and a stone milling process back where they started in the Northeast. They support their community in growing crops sustainably, creating jobs while revitalizing the environment. Their focus on traditional practices allows them to provide local bakeries and breweries with great-tasting products and promote soil revitalization with grains as a natural weed deterrent. Their commitment to conservation began with recycling an old jailhouse as a gristmill and led to their becoming a zero-waste facility.

  • responsible sourcing

    Maine Grains maintains relationships with each of the farmers it sources from, helping them to develop eco-friendly growing practices and providing economic support to strengthen their community. Through the Kneading Conference, they support and inspire further innovation in the industry.
  • supporting key causes

    Maine Grains partners with Maine Grain Alliance, a nonprofit promoting innovative and restorative growing practices for local farmers. Maine Grains also works with Maine Liberation Farms to aid immigrant farmers in their development of community, production, and culturally-appropriate practices.
  • low carbon footprint

    All their byproducts are either composted or passed on to other producers for reuse, such as in feed for livestock. This makes Maine Grains a zero-waste facility.
  • recyclable packaging

    The brown paper bag their products come in is curbside recyclable and home compostable. All you have to do to compost is peel off the paper-based sticker and recycle it.

How to use it

Whisk it with some other kitchen staples (namely, eggs, milk, butter, and salt) for delicate crepes worthy of a little French cafe.

When you're done...

Good news! This packaging is 100% curbside recyclable. The paper bag is also home compostable, just peel off the sticker first.

These are general guidelines for broadly-recyclable materials. Check with your local recycler to confirm what they take.
