Lee Purdy of Westwind Milling Company (Linden, MI about 40 miles north of Ann Arbor) will talk to us about different types of wheat, the kinds of wheat grown in Michigan, and his farm and historic mill.
Westwind is one of the few places in our area to buy locally-grown grains, and they are organic. If you would like to buy some flour or baking mixes from Westwind, place an order by phone or through their web site and Lee will bring your order down on March 8th. (Please pay directly to the mill when you place your order.)
You will also have a chance to try several types of home grain mills and learn about grinding your own flour from whole grains. If you can bring a grain mill to demonstrate, please let us know in the “additional information” box. (Don’t throw your back out bringing your cast iron Country Living mill, though!)
When and where:
