Proudly located in Prince George, on the banks of the Nechako River, we use a traditional handcrafted stone mill to slowly grind phenomenally fresh flour focusing on BC grown organic grains (including heirloom and ancient grain varieties). Our flour is milled-on-demand to ensure the shortest time possible between milling and reaching the hands our incredibly passionate baking customers.
Currently our flours are milled-to-order on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month and shipped the following day.
Our next milling day is Wednesday June 7th, 2023

Mmmmm....crêpes! I had a love-hate relationship with crêpes. I have very fond memories of ordering crêpes in Paris at a street side crêpe stand on the wonderful and famous Rue Cler.

Ever since I was young, pancakes have been synonymous with Saturday morning. I took on the role of making pancakes as a school aged child, and it’s something that has stuck with me for the better part of 40 years.
When our two boys came along, this was both an opportunity to pass on this family tradition, but was also a turning point in bringing fresh milled whole grain flour into the experience. The one thing I noticed when using entirely white flour, was that it almost created a “carb high”, and bringing more whole grains into the recipe, seemed to regulate this better. The nice thing about pancakes, is that it’s an easy and approachable way to try different whole grain flours, both for flavour and texture.
