You'll love how our bread makes you feel
Bread shouldn't be boring, dry, or full of air. Real bread is rich, moist, hearty and life-enhancing. Whole wheat bread made Great-Harvest-style retains vital nutrients. Moms, kids, athletes, and health-conscious people of all ages love the flavor and nutrition benefits.

Fresh foods have better nutritional value
Here at Great Harvest, we believe in providing customers with awesome tasting products. So, all of our products are made from scratch—no mixes or frozen dough! Not only do our products taste better than the average baked goods, but also, our freshly milled whole grain wheat flour assures that we’re delivering nutritional value. Studies show that the fresher foods are (such as milled grains, and vegetables and fruits) the better they are nutritionally. Simply adding fresh ground whole wheat to your diets is an easy and delicious way to load up on the critical fiber, vitamin E, vitamin B, zinc and potassium your body needs.
We use the whole grain
We mill our whole wheat flour fresh daily on a stone mill. Whole wheat kernels are poured into one end of the mill and come out the other end as 100% whole wheat flour. There is absolutely no separation of flour components; nothing added or taken out - just pure fresh flour from the whole grain.

Using flour within 48 hours of milling
We’ve always known fresh ground flour tastes better. We’ve even done lots of blind taste tests just to prove what we’ve know intuitively all along! Now we know the fresh flour is better nutritionally as well. When a kernel of wheat is milled, all parts of the flour start to oxidize as they’re exposed to the air—the germ, which contains free fatty acids, is particularly vulnerable to this oxidation. Simply put, if milled whole wheat flour is not used fresh, it goes rancid. Using our flour within a day after it's milled assures that the nutritive value of our products is the best it can be.

 

So we invite you to come do what tastes good—and have the added benefit of whole fresh food nutrition!
