After a two-and-a-half-month hiatus, Farm & Sparrow artisan bread returns to shelves this Friday. WNC has been blessed with traditional bakers, each of whom has contributed much to putting such fine loaves on our table.
“A mill devoted to NC grains made sense to everyone,” says well known area baker Jennifer Lapidus. “The estate of Alan Scott, is providing our project with the use of his 48” diameter stone-burr Osttiroller gristmill with sifters for one year as a test mill. It was Alan’s work that inspired me to do the work of linking the farmer, miller, and baker in North Carolina. It seems the appropriate measure, a bittersweet story, for Alan’s mill to be used to inspire growers to plant wheat and bakers to buy local grain in North Carolina.”
