We have been working on building a barn for several months now. We've been hampered by the cold and wet winter we have had, but finally have the girders up on the concrete piers! We are rolling forward in order to try and have the barn mostly finished before our Farm Opening and Pottery Sale in June. While farming and pottery is an enjoyable lifestyle, it can be a crunch on finances for major infrastructure building like a barn. We are starting a campaign to raise funds for completing the barn. For a $50 contribution toward the project we are making numbered, square-sided bottles made with a glaze from clay dug at the barn's foundation, decorated with white slip, and a bag of fresh-ground whole wheat flour grown on the farm.
Our flour is a hard red winter wheat for bread flour. It has a great consistency and a nutty flavor.
NuEast, is a part of the Carolina Bread Project to bring back hard red winter wheat to the South. Most wheat currently grown in the South is a white wheat used in pastry flour.
