I generally bake a 50/50 mix of the organic artisan blend and one non-blended flour like red fife. Red fife is easy and delicious, lots of bounce, great taste and crust.
Love it! I use it for my starter for my sourdough bread.
I enjoy using this flour very much. It has a great taste and quality. I will purchase this flour again.
I have been purchasing a variety of different organic flours from Janies Mill and also from a more local mill in Maine (where I live) with the purpose of figuring out what flours work for me in breads, cakes, pancakes, muffins, cookies, etc.. I now purchase Red Fife, mostly for yeasted breads. I love the taste and the texture. It is most important to find an organic flour that I can trust. We eat a lot of home made flour products in our family and the practice of spraying herbicides to quicken the harvest grosses me out. see below:
Glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto‘s Roundup herbicide, is recognized as the world’s most widely used weed killer. What is not so well known is that farmers also use glyphosate on crops such as wheat, oats, edible beans and other crops right before harvest, raising concerns that the herbicide could get into food products.
I know where my flour comes from and that is important to me for the health of my family. Thank you for farming in our country and providing products we can trust. No to Monsanto and yes to smaller independent farmers.

We are retired on the North Shore of Lake Superior but lived in IL until 2005. We live so close to Canada my first experience with Red Fife was buying it in Canada. Loved it so I had to go looking for a new source once the Border was closed. And I found Janie’s Mill—what an extraordinary gift of amazing Red Fife and so many others. Thanks Janie’s Mill!
