Our Stone-Ground Flour
In 2005, The Mill at Anselma was licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture to sell its stone-ground flour products. Our flour and cornmeal are ground using The Mill’s centuries’ old equipment. Our dedicated volunteers tend the hopper, sift the flour, and pack it according to Pennsylvania food safety standards. The Mill and its historic equipment are maintained by our millers and volunteers, as well as through the financial support from our members and visitors. Your purchase of The Mill’s flour and cornmeal products help to preserve this National Historic Landmark, create programs, and enhance The Mill at Anselma as a national treasure.
Dark Roasted Corn Meal
Grown here in Pennsylvania, this wonderfully aromatic corn meal is roasted at a high temperature to give it a richer flavor. It is great for baking corn bread, hush puppies, shake & bake breading, polenta, and for your furry friends – dog biscuits! We typically purchase our freshly roasted corn from Haldeman Mills located in Manheim, PA.
Bread flour is milled from hard red spring wheat. It is commonly grown in the Midwest. Bread flour has higher gluten content making it wonderful for baking bread and pizza dough. Our spring wheat is typically purchased from Snavely’s Mill located in Lititz, PA. They purchase their wheat wholesale from the Midwest.
Pastry Flour is milled from a soft winter wheat. This type of wheat was historically grown and milled here in Pennsylvania. It is excellent for making pastries, pancakes, quick breads and pie crusts. We typically purchase our winter wheat from F.M. Brown’s Sons, Inc. located in Fleetwood, PA.
