Born out of a family corn and soybean farm in Ohio, craft malt house and small batch hop grower Rustic Brew Farm continues to diversify its crops and its offerings, this week adding Sprouted Grain Flours, now available to restaurants and retailers for purchase in Ohio and online.
“Now that we’ve established ourselves as a craft malt house and small batch hop grower for craft brewers, we wanted to expand from the beverage realm and connect our farm’s products full-circle with chefs and food purveyors, too,” says Rustic Brew Farm Founder Matt Cunningham.
Rustic Brew Farm’s new flour line features Sprouted Corn Flour, Sprouted Wheat Flour, and Diastatic Malt Powder— the secret ingredient savvy bakers use to promote volume, browning, and texture.
Local goodness: Rustic Brew Farm grows all of their own grains, non-GMO corn, and low-gluten wheat for flour-making so they can control quality throughout the entire growing process. After harvest, grain is cleaned, sprouted and stone ground on the farm, always without the addition of preservatives or any other chemicals. This flour is 100 percent whole grain, with unmatched flavor from freshness and terroir.
Naturally sweeter to taste and packed with nutrients from the sprouting process, Rustic Brew Farm sprouted grain flour is a great alternative to white flour in baking.
Sprouted Corn Flour and Sprouted Whole Wheat Flour are available for purchase in five or 50 pound bags, and Diastatic Malt Powder is available in 1 pound bags. These sprouted grain flours can be purchased at Rustic Brew Farm and online.
