On Monday we got our Rye grain cleaned at the seed cleaner and Case milled some right away.
It is now available for ordering unsifted and sifted!
It is again a while ago that we posted some news on our blog. We don't know if you follow us on Instagram: vangarderenranchflour for our latest updates.
It has been a busy fall for us and we are very happy with that.
We are not only milling to fill orders we we have also been busy to try to make more kind of flours.
We are able to offer you now an All Purpose Flour. Made from our white grains and from our spelt.
While busy baking all kind of recipes, I tried to find a product that is more "a ready to go product".
We came up with a spelt pancake mix and are able to make whole wheat pancake mix from any kind of flour you would like to buy.
So far I didn't find anyone yet to work on my product site, so these items are not added yet. You can mention it in your order if you would like to buy one of the mixes.
Last Saturday I was at the mini Christmas Market at Country Blooms (Broxburn Park) and hope to be there again coming Saturday Dec 11. It is a beautiful greenhouse stocked full with plants, gifts and christmas items. For sure worth the drive!!
It is a beautiful Saturday today, October 9 2021.
Coming Monday it is Thanksgiving day.
We have so much to be thankful for.
We are healthy
We didn't have any storms this year and were able to harvest all our crops.
We had a good support from our customers.
We had, for 3 weeks, our parents (in-law) over from the Netherlands.
We can make the list longer and longer.
To show you our appreciation we give you 10% off your order in the month of October 2021!
We want to wish you all a good Thanksgiving Day!
We have found the SOUTHERN HASKAP GROWERS willing to take our flour to the Lethbridge market for us.
Coming Saturday is the first Saturday they hope to attend!
Thank you Harvey and Herma for your willingness to sell our products for us!
This year we won't be attending the farmersmarket on Saturdays.
The circumstances make it difficult to be there. We are always willing to bring orders into Lethbridge and you can also order our flours at Mocha Local and Johny Bean Cafe.
For any questions please don't hesitate to contact us by email or text or call.
Our phone number is 403-892-2693
You can follow us now on Instagram. In the coming days we hope to add more information on there.
I am also going to update my products page in the near future.
Our instagram account has the name: vangarderenranchflour
December 7 was a special day for us. We finally had a chance to combine the buckwheat!
Now harvest time is really over for 2020.
We are very happy that the buckwheat is in, since my last buckwheat is going very fast. Now I will have plenty new buckwheat again after it has been to the seed cleaner.
2020 has been a different year than we expected. I hope the restaurants will make it through this difficult time. It must be hard on all of you and your families.
In the meantime there are several stores who started selling my flour in smaller packages. I do enjoy packing it all up for you and get feedback from new customers from far and near.
We want to thank all of you for your support in 2020, and look forward to keep working together in 2021!
I just cancelled the oct 24 market. The roads are in a bad condition and with the forecast of snow falling well into the Saturday I don't think it is worth risking to go to Lethbridge.
If you were planning on buying flour tomorrow, please let me know and I hope to do deliveries in and arround Lethbridge next week.
Coming Saturday I hope to come to the market for the last time this season.
I haven't been there much because the market did change a lot. Most of my clients order from me by email, phone or textmessage. Reaching out to new people is very hard in this time because people are afraid to come to the market or do not take the time anymore to stop by the booth to ask questions.
Also the roads are not in a good condition these past days and the days to come.
Which makes me a little hesitating to drive as well. If there is a lot more snow falling today and or tomorrow I might cancel this last market as well. I will have that posted early Saturday morning.
