Sourcing Regional Grain through Wholesale Greenmarket

Mill Eligibility

The criteria for a mills participation are ultimately that they are able to provide "traceability." This means that the mill is willing and able to identify where their grains are coming from and are able to guarantee to consumers that they are truly getting regional grain sourced from Northeast farmers.

More then just traceability though (which is no small thing in itself), the folks on this list are genuine allies in promoting regional grain as their role as processors is key in the link between farm to bakery. All of the millers we work with come to the table frequently with our farmers, bakers and chefs to participate in the ongoing conversation about quality and the characteristics and challenges of local grains.
