Freshly milled flour cooperative or business - can this work?
I was thinking that the packaged whole wheat flour I get never tastes very fresh and how nice it would be to have freshly ground flour in a variety of whole grains and even white flours. The question is whether in my large city/metro area something like a cooperative or business (maybe on a subscription basis) would work to sell fresh flour.
Wheat, rye and spelt are being farmed within 100 miles and there are a couple of larger millers a couple of counties away. This is all in the DC/Baltimore area.
I have to admit that I have no idea where to even start with this. I know a handful of local bakers, but no clue about possible demand.
