Flours From Finger Lakes Wow NYC Foodsters

A new line of fresh ground flours from our area are garnering big sales among foodsters at farmers markets in New York City, and notice in the New York Times.

Farmer Ground Flours are organically grown on Finger Lakes farms, and milled in Trumansburg. The grains - corn, spelt, and wheat - feature heirloom varieties.

The New York Times says, "to the delight of professional and amateur cooks and bakers... the flours are fresh, and have not sat for months in warehouses."

Farmer Ground Flours are sold at NYC Greenmarkets by Cayuga Pure Organics, a partner in the project. Cayuga Pure Organics has previously attracted notice from the Times for its dried beans, which are also sold immediately after processing, rather than stored.

Cayuga Pure Organic beans are sold locally at GreenStar Co-op, in the Bulk department and for considerably less than in Manhattan and its environs. We imagine the flours are at GreenStar, too, or shall be soon.
