RETURNING BREAD TO ITS RIGHTFUL PLACE
In this age of empty calories and commoditized flour, Dear Grain’s sourdough breads are made with heritage grains and slow fermented for up to 72 hours. Our goals are to showcase the richer flavours, texture and nutritional value offered by fresh milled flours; and to highlight the overlooked relationship between farmers, bakers and the broader community.
