NOCO goes LOCO for Local Flournocofm
We carry local baking flour! Yes, it’s truly local flour and Lake Hollow Homestead carries two varieties (the Sunshine Red and the Oland Heritage), which are locally grown between Berthoud and Loveland right here in Northern Colorado!
The Oland is actually a rare heritage variety and the Olandsvete wheat is a rare, heritage wheat named after the Swedish island of Oland and it tastes like toasted oat. This soft wheat was once grown in Europe and North Africa, but it nearly disappeared from Swedish fields in the 1960’s when modern wheat varieties were discovered.
Lake Hollow Homestead are among a small group of farms trying to bring Oland Wheat back into regular use. This wheat has a deliciously distinct flavor in baking and customers often tell us they produce their best-flavored loaves by adding Oland Wheat to their recipes! So this week, grab yourself a bag or two and let the baking continue… we know you probably did a lot of baking during the holiday, but place the cookies back into the cookie jar and grab yourself some of these local flours and bake yourself a loaf of bread or anything else that you normally bake, but this time use this delicious local flour in your all your winter baking. Let us know how you like it too. We love feedback!
