Local Grains

Established in 2009 as Urban Grains CSA, Cedar Isle Farm Organic Grains CSA provides the Lower Mainland with locally produced grain and flour. The grain crops are all grown and cared for at our family farm in Agassiz, B.C. and all our products are certified organic.

Cedar Isle Farm offers the following types of organic grain available as flour or unmilled kernels (wheat/grain berries):

Hard Red Spring / Winter (Bread) Wheat

Hard Red Wheat has a relatively high gluten content that makes it suitable for making bread. It can also be used in other baking recipes which call for ‘all purpose’ flour.

Soft White Spring (Pastry) Wheat

Soft White Spring Wheat has a lower gluten content, has a lovely flavor and is great for pastries, muffins, cookies and general baking.

Traditional Rye

Rye is prized for use in sourdough breads and classic European recipes.

All Cedar Isle Farm products are certified organic by the BCARA

Community Supported Agriculture

Cedar Isle Farm Organic Grains uses the Community Supported Agriculture model.

A group of people pay a membership fee which entitles them to a share of the season’s harvest.

The CSA model

• Supports local small scale farming

• Fosters a strong community/farmer relationship

• Cultivates a dependable, local and sustainable food system.
