Community Grains offers a small but growing variety of heirloom beans (and whole grain flours, dried pastas, and heritage Italian polentas), all of which are full-flavored heirloom beans, not hybridized for industrial production. They are conventionally grown by the fifth generation northern California farmers of Mohr-Fry Ranch in Lodi. Community Grains beans are all hand sorted and treated with care.
Community Grains is a new California company finding itself at the forefront of several important food trends:
* Local--All Community Grains products are 100% grown and milled in California. They continue to create and maintain relationships between farms, millers, bakers, cooks, expanding community and sharing knowledge.
* Delicious Food--Community Grains offers flour with great texture, performance and flavor characteristics, challenging common assumptions about whole grain food.
* True Whole Grain--All our products include the grain in its entirety and are shelf stable. Our grains are milled without ever separating the germ, bran, and endosperm.
* Transparency and full information--Grains in California are almost entirely found within an industrial structure. Carving out an alternative local grain economy in part depends on trusting in the values of transparency and full information, so Community Grains is about information--lots of it.
