What makes baking so special is that it’s a beautiful dance between the chef, the recipe and the ingredients. It’s science and creativity melded together. At The Birkett Mills, we want to make sure your kitchen is stocked with the specialty flours you need to get the job done.
It all starts with what grows in the soil. Our high quality, soft red winter wheat is sourced from family farms across New York, many that we’ve worked with for generations. Everything is grown with care, pride and dedication.
Once it’s at the mill, we tap into 220 years of custom milling experience to produce delicious, unique specialty flours. Every baker’s needs are different, so our millers use an artisanal, hands-on approach to finely mill to exact specifications, each and every time. Plus, we can mill organic or conventional flours!
