Anyone in Southern California interested in placing a bulk order with Natural Way Mills?

March 25, 2013 - 11:53am --

Hello everyone,

I want to place an order with Natural Way Mills, a mill in Minnesota that sells organic, stone-ground flours at very reasonable prices.  The quality of their flours is amazing.  I have tried their spelt flour, whole-wheat flour and gold n' white flour (unbleached, unbromated, and includes the germ).

If anyone here is interested, let's discuss to see if we can place a bulk order, share a 25-pound bag... and save on shipping costs.

A bientot!

Great River Organic Flour

December 28, 2011 - 10:10am -- Miller1


I was recently contacted by one of the members of this site inquiring about 00 flour.  Great River Organic Milling Company produces a wide variety of flour most of which are stone ground whole grain flours.  All of our flours are available on at very reasonable prices because of the fantastic shipping rates available. Often free shipping. Anyway I don't mean to write a commercial here on the site but was encouraged by a member to let you all know.

Just made a trip out to Central Milling, which is actaully called "Keith Giusto Bakery Supply". They have moved into a new location. 755 Southpoint Blvd, Petaluma, CA. 866-979-2253

They have a very large selection of organic bulk flours. Now, you can call ahead, and they will pack 5lb bags. They ask that you please call ahead though, otherwise, you will wait for some time. If you are buying in 25 or 50lb bags, no problem.

Under construction, is a Bakery School, on site, that will be open soon.

Please email me your contact, if you are intersted in bulk flour. We were told that if enough of us order, they will deliver to SF, as they deliver to the Ferry Bldg twice a week.

What if the label says organic but...

September 15, 2010 - 4:55pm -- mimifix

What if the label says organic but the bakery you know and trust couldn’t source
any organic flour that week? Do you have an expectation of being informed before
you purchase a loaf? If you knew, would you wait a few days until they could buy
organic flour? Since the flour that week costs the bakery less, would you expect
to pay less?

As a customer I expect any bread I purchase will have a correct label on the
wrapper. If that wrapper says organic flour then I expect an organic product.

King Arthur equivalent in Canada

August 12, 2009 - 4:11pm -- tcleves

I have moved from the USA to Victoria, BC. Its beautiful here and I love it. However, I haven't been able to source King Arthur bread flour. I'm buying a bread flour from the local bulk food store. Its OK but not great. I've looked at the Robin Hood bread flour but its bleached. I'm really trying to find an outstanding organic white bread flour. Does anyone have any suggestions. I'm on Vancouver Island.
