We’re happy to offer sliding scale pricing again this season after hearing how helpful it was. Share price tiers correlate with price, while product remains the same. The tiered pricing enables people in our grain community to directly support one another.

  • A shares carry the standard share price that ensures farmer and miller are compensated for their quality work. $550 per share.
  • B shares: by participating at this level, you are going a step beyond, paying your fair share as well as sponsoring our C share members. Order by Nov 12. $650 per share.
  • C shares are priced to allow people experiencing budget constraints to still purchase this healthful and beautiful flour. $450 per share. Share availability is contingent on purchases of B shares, so will open starting Nov 12.

Note on checkout: This platform will offer you shipping. We will not ship to you. We will use your address to suggest your pick-up location and confirm with you by email.

Finally, Sonoma-grown and -milled flour!

And you can tell the difference. These wheats were selected from over a decade of trials for what thrives right here in our special coastal climate and grown using ecological practices. Then, they’re stone milled into distinctive, flavorful flour incomparable to anything you’ve ever eaten.
