I was excited to get the following news in the weekly email from Freshfarm Markets:
New Farmer at Market: This Sunday, August 2, Moutoux Orchard is at our Dupont market with locally grown and freshly milled flours grown in Purcellville, VA. Robb Moutoux is growing wheat, spelt, rye and oats on his family’s farm. The organically grown flours are being harvested now and freshly ground at the farm. Find Moutoux Orchard flours along with directions for using them for baking; the farm stand will be next to Cedarbrook Farm on 20th Street at the Dupont Circle FRESHFARM Market.
In Barbara Kingsolver’s excellent Animal Vegetable Miracle, I believe she said that Virginia grown and milled flour was very difficult to come by. I’m glad to see that has changed. Maybe next time I make carrot cake muffins I can make them even more local.
