organic hard winter wheat

I'm an organic vegetable farmer near San Juan Bautista, Ca. with a penchant for grain growing and whole grain sourdough bread making. In past years the wheat I've grown hasn't shown to be that promising for bread making, but this year's crop of white wheat looks good, it tested at 13% protein and shows great gluten. I've had some ground into flour, so far it's in the 50 lb bags the mill packed it in. I'm looking for local bakers that want to try it out.

I'm not local but would LOVE to try some. We are planning to try to grow our own wheat......

Let me figure out what we can buy for some kind of smaller pack. Maybe a 2lb or 5lb. bag? and then I'll check into USPS or UPS shipping costs and let you know-

Or even 10 pound if it is easier! We are planning to grow not only wheat, but Quinoa, Amaranth and maybe some Rye.....We are looking for a farm about 30 acres so we can try to be more self sufficient and get as much off the grid as we can. We are buying heirloom seeds so we can do our own gardening as well. I am a Registered Nurse and plan to also grow our own herbs not just for cooking but to TRY to get back to the way our ancestors did and keep ourselves healthy as possible by using the herbs and roots they used. I firmly believe that EVERYTHING we need is on this planet....we only need to pay attention! Sorry....didn't mean to preach or ramble! We are VERY excited and you will be helping ALOT!! My zip code for shipping is 37617 in Eastern Tennessee!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!! I am really looking forward to hearing from you!!

I've been baking SD for about 18 months and I'm just beging to mill WW Spelt and Rye and integrating these into my SD.  How can I facilitate? 

Thanks

PS, how can I find local grain farms growing in SoCal?
