Grain on the move: from farm to mill

September 6th, 2009 by Admin

In the last post from mid-August we saw photos of the harvest, which was very successful but kept Jim, Diane and the kids busy as bad weather threatened to catch the crop at an inopportune time. All crises were averted, however, and the result was an abundant harvest for this year’s CSA members. Today we’re sharing photos from the farm taken last week, as the grain was loaded into the truck and driven to Anita’s mill, one step closer to it’s final destination in Vancouver.

We’re getting very close to setting a delivery time so watch this space for an update from Chris announcing pick-up times and location. In the meantime, enjoy the photos! The new faces you’ll see below are Todd Wilson, who transported the bags, and Christiaan + family, visitors to the farm. Thanks to all of those who helped out with this stage.

A job well done!

    Fabulous pics and exciting to know that the bread-making adventure is about to start.

    Any advice on how we can optimally store the flour when it comes?

    I would like to know if I could buy red spring wheat by the bag.
    I am thinking of buying 5 bags.
