All the kids (human and goat varieties) were out this morning when I dropped off flour and wheat berries to restock at Georges Mill Farm Store! Stop on by to get your baby goat fix/cheese fix/baking supply fix!
A little late on posting, but here go the oats into the ground a couple weeks ago. Future granola and oatmeal hiding in there!
Prepping for this year's oats planting!
Great to visit Wadsons Mill and Deep Roots Milling down in Nelson County earlier this week for the Common Grain Alliance meeting! A great soils demo, a tour of the mill, and some good chats with fellow farmers, millers, bakers, and maltsters! If you're interested in supporting a group thats looking to rebuild a regional grain economy here in the Mid-Atlantic, CGA is where its at! https://www.facebook.com/commongrainalliance
Last hay of the season delivered this past week (with a hopefully satisfied customer looking on!). Still have a small amount of straw for your veggie mulching, stall bedding, and decorating needs. Also plenty of wheat still available for milling and brewing!
Most of this fall's wheat (hard and soft) is in the ground, and the last of the hay is baled. Of course...a few late season repairs had to rear their heads too...tire, bearings, belts...
Exciting day in Lovettsville yesterday for the Co-op Market groundbreaking. The real countdown begins now with construction slated to start next month. Thanks to everyone who came by and bought flour, rolled outs, and wheat berries!
The long wait is almost over! Excited to join my fellow local farmers and community members there to celebrate the ground breaking!
After a decade of planning and grassroots fundraising, theLovettsville Cooperative Market will celebrate the groundbreaking for its grocery store on
Two deliveries this week...500 lbs of wheat headed to Colvin Run Mill for milling, and 8000 lbs to Murphy and Rude Malting in Charlottesville. Your next purchase of Murphy and Rude malt might just be Hanging Rock wheat! Thanks to Colvin Run and Murphy & Rude!
Thanks to another day with Trent from Three Monkeys Farm and all of this year's wheat and oats are ready to go! Suffice to say that I have plenty of grain available for your milling, baking, brewing a malting needs. Currently grain is bagged in 50-60 lbs. sacks or 1 ton super sacks. Oats are $1.00 per lbs, and wheat .75 per lbs. in the smaller bags. Larger super sacks are priced based on quantity. These are unmilled (not rolled or ground).
Hanging Rock Hay and Grain updated their information in their About section.
Long day of cleaning this year's oats and wheat with the help, equipment and skills of Trent at Three Monkeys Farm, friend help from Danny, and we're halfway done! Plenty of crop available this year for your baking, brewing, and malting needs!
Very excited to share that Hanging Rock Hay and Grain Soft Red Wheat is an ingredient in the Loudoun Grown Farmhouse Ale from Wheatland Spring Brewery! Along with Wheatland Spring's own grain and collaboration with Dirt Farm Brewing in Bluemont, the brew includes hops from Fabbioli Cellars, and grain from Three Monkeys Farm...a great crew to be part of! Its great to be part of putting Loudoun grown ingredients in locally made products...so head on over to Wheatland Spring and Dirt Farm and buy yourself one...or..two...or pick your favorite number to take home!
Wheat harvest has begun! Soft Red Winter wheat in addition to being great for pastry flour, also works for brewing, so if you're in need ingredients for your home or commercial brewing operation, drop a line. Straw also will be available from this crop.
Dinner Belles Kitchen Cupboard in Lovettsville is restocked this morning with Fine and Coarse ground soft red wheat flour as well as rolled oats for all of your baking, pancake-ing, granola, and oatmeal-ing needs in Greater Lovettsville and northern Loudoun!
So its not ALWAYS about hay, wheat, and oats...
Sometimes its time to team up with some of the Lovettsville farming crew up at Georges Mill Farm to plant some mulberry trees for some future silvopasture! And no, I didn't toss Eliza or Molly off the planter once!
Supplies are EXTREMELY limited while I work on more efficient production method (wait for the larger mill I have ordered to arrive), but word on the street is Hanging Rock Hay & Grain Rolled Oats are available at Georges Mill Farm Store. Of course all the regular locations are stocked up with flour!
Its been awhile, so some updates! All of the usual locations should be stocked with Fine and Coarse flour with Spring House Farm Store and Georges Mill just getting a "refuel." Also, proud to announce Hanging Rock Hay & Grain is now in downtown Leesburg at the Very Virginia shop!
Finally, if all goes to plan (and the new roller mill arrives!), rolled oats should be available next month. Oatmeal for breakfast, oatmeal raisin cookies, granola...all those things!
Just a reminder for any New Years baking resolutions...Hanging Rock Hay & Grain flour is in stock at all its usual locations! Finish out a crummy year with some cookies...or some pumpkin bread...or some New Years morning pancakes!
Thanks to Georges Mill Farm Store, Spring House Farm Store, Mom's Apple Pie at Hill High, Round Hill Grocery, Dinner Belles Kitchen Cupboard, and Paige's Pit Stop for keeping it on the shelf!
For my Hay customers, the barn is empty and I'm sold out for the winter, but don't forget to check back in late May and early June for first cutting. Until then stay safe and stay healthy!
The first of this year's grain has been milled and picked up from Colvin Run Mill. I'll be bagging this week and stores will be restocked soon with both Fine and Coarse ground varieties. Straw is also available from this year's crop for your fall decorating needs, and of course first and second cutting hay are also still available!.
The first batch of this year's crop has been dropped off at Colvin Run Mill for milling! Watch for stores to be restocked with both fine and coarse ground flour late next week or soon after. Thanks for the patience!
From the top of the Loudoun (and the Commonwealth), its Hanging Rock Hay & Grain!
Some additional pictures from yesterday's wheat and oats cleaning fest. Fingers crossed for good test results...with that, on to milling!
It was a busy day yesterday with Trent from Three Monkeys Farm cleaning this year's wheat and oats. If sunburn and sore muscles are a sign of a successful job, this one must have done well!
The goats of Georges Mill Farm tell me the wheat is allllmost ready to harvest. Ok, maybe it was my moisture tester, but they look smart, so they probably already knew.
Lots of first cutting on the ground! Being baled the next couple of days. $4.00/bale from the wagon in the field!
Wheat, hay and oats all coming along nicely! First cutting now available!
Crop updates all around:
First fields of first cutting hay are on the ground now and should be baled by tomorrow. Let me know what you need!
Wheat fields are coming in nicely, still looking at harvest sometime in July, and if the quality tests all come back well, milling hopefully taking place soon after that and the stores re-stocked with Hanging Rock Hay and Grain Flour this summer!
Oats are putting some growth on as well, keep an eye out for Hanging Rock Hay and Grain Oats this summer too!
Finally, millet just got planted a bit over a week ago, so if that crop does well, your millet baking and birdseed needs should be filled late this summer!
Thank you for your continued support!
Good news! The last batch of last year's wheat crop was milled this week (thank you Colvin Run!), bagged up, and delivered to Georges Mill Farm Store, Paige's Pit Stop, Dinner Belle's Kitchen Cupboard, and Spring House Farm Store. All locations are restocked with both Fine and Coarse Ground Soft Red Wheat Flour. Thank you all for your patience and business during this interesting time. Enjoy your pancakes, cookies, muffins, breads and whatever else you think Hanging Rock flour tastes good in!
Its always good when the crop is up and green! Here come the oats.
Hey thanks Leesburg Farmers Market and LVHMA! Great idea for using your Hanging Rock Hay and Grain soft red wheat flour!
