Earth’s Harvest Farm Demo
March 4, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Healthy Living is proud to welcome Earth’s Harvest Farm for a demo on Saturday, March 4th from 12pm-3pm.
From their website:
We use a variety of organic whole grains in our porridge blends. In addition to the rich flavor whole grains provide to our porridge, they also have great health benefits. Numerous medical studies have clearly shown that whole grains reduce risks of heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and obesity. Few foods can offer such diverse benefits.
Good ingredients are important in any food product. We don’t skimp. We take organic whole grains and mill them into the cereals we sell. While that seems like a pretty straightforward concept, other hot cereals are not always made that way. Large flour mills often include byproducts from grain milling as an inexpensive ingredient in a hot cereal. Also, some producers use grains imported from China and other countries because they are less expensive than domestically grown grains.
The milling process:
Our cereals are ground on a stone burr mill. Most of the cereal produced commercially is processed with high speed steel mills that produce heat that damages the grain. The type of milling used makes a difference in the appearance, nutrition, taste and texture of the cereal. Stone milling makes a superior hot cereal.
The porridge makers:
Earth’s Harvest Farm is a small family run farm. Small scale organic farming and milling is our livelihood. Our family is directly involved in the production of every bag of porridge we make. We make an artisan food product that isn’t easily copied on a large commercial scale. We think you will come to appreciate the difference when you take your first taste!
