Product Profile: Local Flour from a Local Mill
“Once upon a time every village had a mill.” This is the mantra of K2 Milling, an artisanal, multigrain flour mill located in Tottenham, Ontario. They are one of the newest members of Ontariofresh.ca.
Owner Mark Hayhoe likes to point out that 130 years ago, there were over 2,500 mills operating in this province. Now there are approximately 20, including the large industrial operations. His operation is anything but industrial. At a total of two employees, K2 Milling embodies the word ‘artisanal.’ They use only local grain, and only serve a local market.
“Our flour is available up to 100 miles from the mill. Outside this area – find another mill.” This unique operation boasts Ontario’s diversity of crops, with flour ground from “spelt, corn, rye, oat, barley, soft wheat, hard wheat, soyabeans, sorghum, millet, red fife, teff, amaranth, quinoa, rice, durum, lentils, peas, beans, just to name a few.” They even boast an all-Greenbelt flour called the “Moraine Multigrain.” This is a cereal grain flour comprised of spring wheat, ancient corn and oats, three crops which have historically called the Oak Ridges Moraine home.
