Lindley Mills' founder and President, Joe Lindley, was hooked on the first flour he milled. From the beginning, he used his craft to provide the highest possible quality products to the bakers he served, giving them the best foundation for their artisan baking. Just as bakers must "listen to the bread" to adjust their recipes, we listen to the baker to deliver the flours they need for their own creations. Today's post is one in a series of "Customer Appreciation" blog posts, where we take a minute to thank the talented artisan and home bakers who enjoy using Lindley Mills' products.
Today we would like to thank Crisenbery Baking Company in Lebanon, Ohio for being a Lindley Mills customer.
As a small, family-owned mill, we strive to maintain personal relationships with our customers. We truly appreciate the bakers who support what we do, and we are committed to continuing to mill only the highest quality organic flour for our customers. Today's post is the first in a series of "Customer Appreciation" posts that we will be sharing here to honor and celebrate all the bakers who support our family business by feeding their craft and communities with the best organic ingredients available!
Today we want to thank our Chatham County, NC neighbors at Chicken Bridge Bakery for being loyal Lindley Mills customers for many years. Chicken Bridge Bakery is a family operation made up of artisan bakers Rob and Monica Welsh and their young sons Simon and Milo, who occasionally help and are forever tasting their products.
Chicken Bridge Bakery uses locally milled, organic flour, locally grown ingredients, and carefully cultured natural yeasts for leavening to make wholesome bread. Their creations can often be found at local farmer's markets and in local co-op grocery stores. Bakers Rob and Monica are fans of our Super Sprout™ Sprouted Whole Grain Wheat Flour as well as the 100% Organic North Carolina Bread Flour. Their creations are actual works of art (and they are all absolutely delicious). We are so fortunate to have such innovative craftspeople in our local community!
Artisan Baker, Chef Peter Reinhart has been a long-time fan of Super Sprout™sprouted whole grain wheat flour.

No sugar or honey, no oil, no preferment, and no long, extended fermentation--just flour, water, salt, and yeast."
