Hulless oats are not completely free of hulls. They still contain a small amount (1-3%) or so of hulls after the usual process of cleaning. Here we are using a roller type huller at #nextstepproduce to remove the last few hulls for a most pleasant dining experience. We rebag the whole oats and roll them fresh to order for the customer. We hope you enjoy our new improved organically grown oats. #localgrains #graincleaningequipment #supportyourlocalfarmer #hullessoats

On a recent trip to the Himalayas, I was captivated by the rich, nutty flavor of Bhutanese red rice. Since rice is a grain, some folks might say this recipe is not Paleo. I beg to differ. Strong evidence has recently emerged that our humanoid ancestors ate grasses for milleniums, which eventually le...

Fresh from the field butterbeans! They didn't all get a chance to mature into their nice purple black mottled appearance. Looks like a lima bean, taste like a lima bean, must be a lima bean! Here they are drying down on a drying table at about 1 1/2" thick layering.

Hi there, we picked up a bag of rice on a whim at DuPont last Sunday and fell in love! I'm not seeing rice and grains for purchase on your website. Am I missing something or do we have to catch you at a farmers market again? Do you have a calendar so we know where to find you?
Your oatmeal is divine! I love plain oatmeal or with a bit of berries/fruit. I had a bowl of your oatmeal for the first time this morning and WOW! It's quite tasty compared to the organic rolled oats I usually buy elsewhere. Thank you a million times over, PMO!!!
