Grains from Brian Severson Farms
Brian Severson Farms is a family farm that specializes in raising better tasting heirloom grains. They grow, harvest, clean, store and process these products on our farm. Stone milling is done in small batches, keeping their inventory at a minimum. Does it make a difference if the farmer and miller are the same person? We think so! These are truly seed to table grains.
Blue Hopi Cornmeal
The Blue Hopi listed here is an heirloom flour corn variety, NOT a dent or flint. The starch is mostly all soft, and is especially sweet. It makes a good, flavorful blue colored cornbread or grits. Because of its soft starch, it's only offered as a medium grind, which works well for both grits and baking in breads. It's a 600 year old open pollinated variety that came from the Hopi Indians of the American southwest. This grain is certified organic.
Soft Red Wheat Berries
This grain is transitional organic. It has a soft, nutty, chewy texture and is great in pilafs, porridge and breads.
Hard Red Wheat Berries
Tons of protein and great in salads. This product is transitional organic.
Bloody Butcher Red Corn Grits
The Bloody Butcher corn listed here is an heirloom open pollinated non-GMO dent corn variety from the Appalachians. Some “strains” of this variety have flecks of red on a white kernel that resemble blood on a butcher's apron (thus the name). Our “strain” seems to have lost that characteristic and is mostly all dark blood red kernels with an occasional white one.
