Sourcing Whole Grains

Minnesota state laws permit retail establishments and foodservices to purchase raw, unprocessed grains from any farmer who is selling the produce of his or her own farm. A few farms in the state have licensed facilities for milling grain to produce flour. There are also some small mills that purchase grain from Minnesota farmers and produce flour. See Finding Local Food for databases and directories of local producers.
