What kind of whole wheat flour to get for bread?

I have read somewhere here about people ordering whole wheat flour from people, who grow organic wheat and grind it to your specifications right before mailing it to you.  I am about to order a 10lb bag to try, but don't know how they should grind it.  I bake whole wheat bread, including sourdough.  I would appreciate any advice.  Thanks!

Pamela,


Thank you for your reply and the information!  I just ordered a bag and can't wait to try it out.

I'm flattered, but you really should thank Eric. Let me know how it is. I've not order from them yet.
